Windows 7: Viewing Previous Screens With Back-Arrow in Firefox ?

Viewing Previous Screens With Back-Arrow in Firefox ?


Using Firefox.

It used to be that I could click the "Back Arrow" and pull up the last screen to view again.
Or, I could click many, many times this back arrow, and view quite a ways back.

Now, no more.

At best, I can click once, and that's about it.

What should I set in Options (I guess) to be able to re-access many of the previous views ?
Is there a built in limit ?

If you right-click on the back arrow, you should see a list of previously visited sites for that tab. If there are fewer than you expect, could it be that you had them open in their own tab?

Neat! I didn't know about that. Works with Seamonkey and Pale Moon too.
