Version 2.0 115.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.7a6pre

Back IS Close has been completely re-written for Firefox 3.x. While it does the same thing it always did, it now does it more cleanly, and more quickly, thanks to improvements both in Firefox and in Back IS Close.

If you have Back IS Close version 1.4 or earlier installed, you MUST manually uninstall it before installing Back IS Close 2.0. If you're using Firefox 2.0, Back IS Close 2.0 won't work for you; keep using Back IS Close 1.4.
