Will you guys just put the back/forward navigation button in the OOo components or should i reverse my OOo advocacy campaign? This is plain outrageous. I looked over the posted issues and i found Issue 13647 http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=13647 (which also references Issue 5608 http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=5608 ) dating from the dinosaurs era (i.e. OOo 1.x), but i still see no resolution. Why on earth does it take YEARS to have such a super-simple feature added on? I just want these two buttons next to the "navigator" button in the "Standard" toolbar, what's so hard about that? Don't you guys realize that a document without hyperlinks is plain crippled, and having hyperlinks in a document is COMPLETELY USELESS without a minimal navigation features in OOo (i.e. without back and forward buttons i'm spending more time thinking about wether to click on a link or not then reading the document, for how much longer you think users will accept this?)

TM->requirements: Not a defect but might be a wish for an enhancement, so please have a look.

Hi, I really thought i'll never get a reply to this issue, thought that my extreme frustration with not being able to browse a document translated into a much too harsh language (by my own standards it's been plain rude). So first of all, please accept my apologies for the language... Now that we're here, i'd like to add one more request (section "would be nice to have") to this hyperlinks navigation thigie (apart from the minimal fwd/back buttons): maybe you could also add a "open in new window" in the hyperlinks' context menu (just like in mozilla). Until OOo will become tabs-based it's the closest thing to what people are used to (i.e. back, fwd, new window/tab) So, to rise: Back and Forward buttons next to the Navigation button in the std bar "Open in new window" in the hyperlinks' context menus -> would be nice to have Cheers!

(In reply to Edwin Sharp from comment #3) > F5 The request has nothing to do with Navigator, but with Navigation icons you see in LibO, what are similar to Internet Browser Back / Forward icons. So this one is a DUP of "Issue 5608 - Navigation button on OOo for hyperlink navigation (provide browser-like back/forward buttons) " *** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of issue 5608 ***
