Hi all,
For no apparent reason my blue buttons on the top left of screen for forward/backward are greyed out and not usable. Anybody have ideas?

If you are on line and you are on a web page. There is nothing to go back to.

If you are on a web page and then you go on a link and it opens n the same page there is something to go back to

If you are on a web page and you click on a link and it opens in a new page, there is nothing to go back to on that page.

It is gray in scenario one and three

open any folder. tools/folder options/general. make sure that in "browse folders" that "open each folder in the same window" is checked. i think that will solve problem.
