NoUn Buttons: Unmerge Back & Forward Buttons/Menus Version History

8 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 27.5 KiB Works with Firefox 4.0 - 56.*

Some of the changes...
  • Menus are now aligned to the buttons, not the mouse
      When you right-click on the Back/Forward button (or one of the drop down arrows), the menu is now aligned to the BUTTON, like it was in Firefox 2, instead of displaying the menu on top of the button (wherever your mouse was when you right-clicked). I will make this a pref, so you can turn it off (if desired).
  • Buttons now appear "down" when the menu is displayed
      Like above, in Firefox 2, when you right-clicked one of the buttons that have a menu, the button would appear "down", while the menu was displayed. I have re-implemented this effect (it was dirt-simple to do too!). Again, I will make this a pref, so you can turn it off (if desired).
  • The Unified Back/Forward button now has Unmerged Menus/Histories too
      I have added code that alters the menu of the Merged Back/Forward button, so that it has the same separate histories as the separate buttons. Again, I intend to provide a pref to disable this — actually, I intend to provide a pref for almost everything I implement. I'm not like the Firefox Devs, where I'm scared of adding prefs.
Known Issues...
  • There are NO preferences, yet
      Sorry, but I have not written the code to handle any prefs yet.
  • Too many Back & Forward buttons are bad.
      Putting Firefox's built-in (merged) & NoUn Buttons's (unmerged/separate) Back & Forward buttons on any toolbars (even hidden ones) at the same time is "bad" (it causes problems {for unknown reasons}, ironically {did I use that right?}, that's what the screenshots show! — but that was just to show them all on each screenshot). Hoping for fix. For now: "just don't do that": remove Firefox's merged crap from ALL/ANY toolbars & add NoUn Buttons to whatever toolbar you want.
