Noscript is not a feature, it is a giant bug.
Indeed, it's mainly just a nuisance. No idea why so many people are enthusiastic about it. I suppose if people visit questionable sites then it might be worthwhile, but for normal browsing it is far more trouble than it's worth. I never did manage to get it configured sensibly, so I threw it away.

Also you can use Click&Clean add-on for Firefox, which helps you to clear your internet history and protect your privacy in one click, and also included e.g. the ability to run an external application (for example: BleachBit, Computer Janitor, CCleaner, WiseDiscCleaner, ...)

As much as I appreciate the suggestions made so far, I feel that I must refocus the thread on my original question...a means to use mouse flips in Firefox in the same fashion that they are in Opera. Not mouse gestures, nor special windows or dedicated mouse buttons, etc. just a simple mouse flip using only the left-right mouse buttons.

This will do exactly what you want;

PS. There are other add ons which will also provide rocker navigation, but they also usually have a lot of other functions as well. The add on shown ONLY provides the rocker function.

I wanted a digital clock on the address bar, so I installed the Simple Timer + Clocks 1.3.2 add on. It does everything that I want, except that it won't retain my settings. Sometimes it totally disappears from the toolbar, and others it just goes back to it's default icon when FF is restarted, and I have to reset it each time from it's right click context menu. I have played with it quite a bit, and I don't think that there is a solution for this, so I'm wondering if there is some other add on that will work properly in this fashion?

There are a lot of clock addons;

I don't use any so I can't make any informed comment.

But a lot of people like this;

This is not an add-on for Firefox, it's a separate program, but some people like it;

I noticed. I'm not sure that any trick would do the job, because the latest version was dated in 2005 for a very early version of Firefox, and Firefox automatically blocked it's installation.
