It's more or less deprecated by Uppity which does a lot more and is keyboard controllable.

Works great - simple and does exactly what it says it will do. Works fine on Firefox 8.0 - all you have to do is to bump the .xpi file before installing. Unpack the xpi with Winrar or somethings similar, open the install.rdf file and change the Firefox maximum version to whatever you are using. Save everything and then install.
Our CMS is not compatible with FF 4 or 5, so we still have to run 3.6. This was one of my most used extensions, & I would love to see a backwards compatible version, please! :-)
Really useful add-on, shame it's not updated anymore.
Check out Uppity for a newer addon which performs this function, plus has a menu to go up multiple levels at a time.
It's so sad that this is not available for 3.6, as it's such a great extension.
When the version number is corrected, I will install it and upgrade my rating to 5.
Stephen is providing a similar feature through his new Link Widgets extension which is compatible with FireFox 3.5:
Detailed instruction for standard users to make Go Up compatible with current version of Firefox:
Download the Add-On (Right mouse click on button "Add to Firefox", select "Save as ...")
Unpack the downloaded xpi-file with any unzipper (e.g. ZipGenius) into a new directory.
Open this new directory. It contains 3 files. Open the file "install.rdf" with a text editor.
Find the tag 1.5.0.* (almost at the end of the file).
Change this tag to 3.* (or higher number than 3).
Save and close the file "install.rdf".
Create a zip-archive from the three files in the new directory.
Change the extension of the created zip-archive from .zip into .xpi
Drag and drop this new xpi-archive on an open firefox window. This will install the extension.
Does anybody know why every single user has to do this on her own???
Have used this extension forever! Easy to fix for 3.5 - download & open .xpi file (7-zip works nice), edit install.rdf. Change to something big like 15.0. Open/install modified .xpi and it should work. YMMV.
A must-have addon! Any chance this will be updated for Firefox 3.5?
Yes, could you pretty please make this compatible with 3.5?
Simple addon but works fine... well, "worked" fine is more adapted since I installed Firefox 3.5 :-)
I guess it can't be that hard to update
Nice work, though!
Great little add on, but I would love to be able to select some different colours for it - the rest of my icons are blue, so this stands out like a sore thumb!
Really useful. I previously had the Google Toolbar installed just to use its version of this button. A stand alone version is a big advantage.
I use this frequently, and it saves me much time and frustration.
If a pulldownmenu could be added to the toolbarbutton, to select the different leveles of a webadress. this would be perfect.
This extension works with Firefox 3 but will refuse to install. To get it to work just extract the .xpi file (it's a zip file) and edit the install.rdf file and change the value in the tag to 3.* or something else high enough for your version. Package it back up and it will install ok.
I miss this extension terribly now I'm running Ubuntu Hardy with Firefox 3. Steven, I beg of you, *Please* update it.
