Weird, I just tried and the same happened to me. I tried the reverse of what
you did as well (that is I went to Sympatico, then went to another website,
then used the back button to go back to Sympatico and after about 1-2
seconds the forward button greys out.
It looks to me like there is a script on the site that conflicts with the
forward/back navigation (note, right clicking then selecting back does not
work either).

I wonder if you should send Mozilla a bug report on this?? Its definitely
reproducible by visiting a site or two then going to Sympatico then back.
Also I tried this in windows just to check, and it is an issue there too;
however chrome does not seem to have this problem in either Ubuntu or
windows. Looks like you found a bug :-)
