Binary package hint: firefox

Current implementation (Firefox 4.0beta7)

  1. Move pointer to back button on navigation toolbar
  2. Click and hold without moving
  3. Move (still holding left-button)
  4. Release over chosen item

Previous, historical behaviour (in line with other menu implemtations):

  1. Move pointer to back button on navigation toolbar
  2. Click and hold (regardless of movement)
  3. Release over chosen item

The newer implementation slows the user down by preventing them ancipating
the shortly-to-appear menu. The newer implementation is harder to accurately
complete (especially on pen, or finger-based devices) where the pointer must
not be allowed to move until the menu has appeared.
