Back to Start

Opera has a really nice feature that allows you to “Go back to start”. So, what does that mean exactly? This means you can go back to the first page on a website you started browsing, even if you are a few clicks in. The Back to Start add-on for Firefox brings this functionality to your favorite browser.

Here are more details about this add-on from the developer:

This extensions implements a “go back to the start of the current website”-button as it was available in Opera.
This means if you enter some website http://www.xyz.com and then browse some photo slideshow 50 pages deep you can go back to the start of http://www.xyz.com with a single click.
Only the actual browser history is used, so you won’t end up on a 404 page like it happens with “navigate up”-style extensions.
After activation a new button with a double arrow appears in your toolbar, just move it to where you like it best. This might not the best way to handle it, but it’s easy to program and it works.

    You can rick click on the back arrow icon and go back 8 at a time. Yeah, not quite what one might want, but if you only want to go back part of the way, that’s a good way to do it. And then you can right click on the forward arrow, and jump forward, too.
