Windows 7: Is there a fix for this annoyance in Firefox

Is there a fix for this annoyance in Firefox

OK I downloaded and installed firefox. Up to now I am impressed, especially with the memory use which is about a quarter of what IE was using. Also firefox only has one process running for ALL open tabs whereas IE had a seperate process running for each tab.

One problem though if anyone knows how to fix it. I use a lot of forums and am constantly using the back button to switch between threads and forums. IE used to refresh the page when the back button was pressed so that I could instantly see new posts and threads. However firefox does not do this and I am having to manually refresh the page each time.

Is there a setting to fix this please. (still finding my way around the program.)

An extension called Tab Mix Plus has an option to refresh any number of tabs every x number of seconds.

Mouse Over Annoyance
Don't know if this is just me or if it's a specific Windows 7 issue. Navigating through Explorer sometimes you need to find out some information about a file. Hover your mouse over the file and you get information. I was looking to see if any of the tracks on an album were larger than expected...
