Firefox had problems with one specific site: clicking on any link showed the animated circle, indicating that the page was being fetched. But further nothing happened, and I couldn't even close the tab! Therefore I decided to reset Firefox, realizing that I might have to redo a lot of configuration.
One of the things I had before were a left button and a right button on my toolbar, to go to the previous and next site, resp. But when I opened the "customize" window the buttons weren't there. Have they been removed from version 33, or are they hidden somewhere?

  • Just a guess, are they context sensitive? If there is nowhere to back / forward to / from then they are hidden, they aren't specific buttons you can add or remove and appear or disappear from beside the navigation bar as needed? – Richard Lucas Nov 24 '14 at 14:51
  • @Richard - When back or forward didn't apply the buttons were grayed out, but still there. Thanks for your reply. – stevenvh Nov 24 '14 at 14:52

I have version 33 and they are there. When you say reset, is:

a. unistall and install firefox

b. erase the firefox profile

Did you try: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/701756 -> And this:

  • If you see the item in the Customize window then drag it back from the Customize window to the Navigation toolbar.
  • If you do not see that item then click the Restore Default Set button in the View > Toolbars > Customize window.

In View > Toolbars > Customize window, do you have a screen like this? http://screencast.com/t/uMesCvvT

  • By reset I mean "reset to default state" (Help | Troubleshooting information | reset). I've updated to version 33 now, and they're still not there. – stevenvh Nov 24 '14 at 15:15
  • Yes, I see the screen you posted on screencast. (But this also doesn't show the buttons, and neither are they on the toolbar.) – stevenvh Nov 24 '14 at 15:17
  • Do you still have important configurations there? I think you could try a Restore Defaults in the screencast screen – Alberici Nov 24 '14 at 15:20
