Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Prior to version 3.0, Firefox had drop-down lists for both the Forward
and Back buttons, allowing you to simply navigate forwards or backwards
among previously visited pages.  This was very straightforward and easy
to understand.  In version 3.0, the two lists have been combined into a
single drop-down list.  This is now confusing.  I've been using Firefox
3.0 (beta and full release) since April and I still can't get used to
this.  Some websites seem to mess up the drop-down list, meaning I have
to close that tab and start again.  I've tried and tried to get used to
the New Way, thinking it was just my stupidity, but I've finally decided
that no, it's not me.  Firefox was better with one drop-down list for
each button.  The new single drop-down is a bad idea and a retrograde
