Does FF have a "navigation bar", like Opera?
For when the web page has LINK rel="next" etc. elements.

I like Opera's "navigation bar" that shows 'home', 'index', 'contents, 'next', 'previous' etc. links based on the documents LINK REL="..." elements. But does Firefox have a similar feature built in, without installing an add-on?

I found this old thread (from 2003!) which implied it did:

Hester: Mozilla also has this hidden bar, but the difference is that Opera has a fixed range of buttons. Whereas Mozilla allows you to define ones as you need, which appear in the Document and More menus.


...or were they talking about Mozilla Mozilla, not Mozilla Firefox?! Anyway, I can't find anything, any ideas?

The engine once had a single click icon/option that would display a menu but it was removed a few years ago. I cannot remember why. You could easily switch between multiple style sheets with it, etc. At least I think that is what is being asked here. You may find information on the menu ...

Thanks for the reply, I can't find anything more within the current day FF. I believe this functionality is available from add-ons, so I may go down that route... although I'm really only using it for testing at the moment and Opera currently provides in that respect.
