another good addon - its a shame the devs and those that waste time on ui log in animation could not put that time to better use and add them in the core browser

something is badly wrong with the thinking on bringing a full product to the users

Agree. All of those "missing" features should be (optional) out-of-box... :tap:

some code from 0,dat 

    <!-- History Button -->
<!--
    <div class="item nav-history" mx-object="ui.navHistoryButton" mx-listen="$(on-NavHistory)$" " title="$history.recentList$" style="behavior:popup-menu; context-menu: selector(#POPUP_HISTORY);" menu="#POPUP_HISTORY" align-context-menu="bottom">
        <div class="icon"></div>
    </div>
-->

for those that dont understand it that is the history button that is coded into the standard skin - so its there and would show on the navbar but someone has chosen to hide it from users - WHY? - for what purpose

there are similar examples in the main drop down menu of commented out settings - settings that users have asked for - who decides such things and [again] why?

The answers are simple. We both know that mx 5  is basically nothing more than re-skined 4th version. There are plenty of lines of code (leftovers:titter:) from previous version.

2nd thing - the reason why all of those features are still hidden is also simple. They don't have nothing innovative or interesting to offer at this moment.

So you should expect that sooner or later there will be a big comeback of all those missing features. With big announcements, with more exciting GIF's and screenshots through over the forum and fb... They did exactly the same with 4.9 branch.

Maybe the UI designers can't do the backend code for the browser. So they need to keep busy with something... that said, there's plenty of UI issues to fix...

Personally I remove it. It's available via shortcut, or from the reopen last tab rightclick menu. Still easily accessible (just one extra click) and i'd imagine not something that gets used all the time.

More than anything probably just to unclutter the UI. Probably would have been better if they just disabled it from the default UI, rather than actually disabling it from the skin though. That's my take on why they dropped it.
