Re: [OT perhaps] Any way to restore Iceweasel 2 behavior in the Navigation bar?

Hi, Patrick.

I mostly like Firefox/Iceweasel 3 but I hate what they've done to the
navigation bar.  Clicking on the down-arrow at the right now brings up
unclassified bookmarks or something instead of recently visited sites.
(Is it an attempt to replicate some sort of IE behavior?

Of course, it is. The damn win32 version even ships with a look-i-am-the-same theme.

I wouldn't
know, but if so, why???)  Yes, I know there's another down-arrow on
the toolbar to bring up recent sites visited, but it's TAB-SPECIFIC.
And I use tabs a lot, tabs being one of the things which makes Firefox
terrific.  I want to be able to click on that right down-arrow and get
the list of recently-visited sites (without regard to tab) I used to
get.  Is there any way to do that, or did some geek or other decide to
change the user experience irrevocably for no good reason?

I believe, what you're looking for is hidden somewhere in about:config.
I can't say for sure, but you might search for 'history' or 'rating' words there and try.

And the last is that it has History menu, that can be considered as a workaround :).
