Back IS Close replaces the “Back” button with a “Close” button when the “Back” button is disabled because there is no page to go “back” to. The close button will close the tab or browser, as appropriate.

Need to quickly navigate back in the browser history? Now sure, you could click the actual backwards button, in the Firefox navigation toolbar. I have another alternative for you to try though. MileWideBack is an add-on for Firefox that will let you click on the left border of your Firefox window to go back to the previous web page you were viewing.
What does does this extension for Firefox allow you to do? Well, if you can navigate forward if you right-click with your mouse on the Firefox border too. If you are using tabbed browsing, middle-click on the left border to close the current tab, or rotate the mouse-wheel to cycle through your current tabs.

So if you are looking for way to make your browsing experience more user friendly or unique, MileWideBack is well worth your time. Give it a shot, and let me know if you find browsing this way is better or worse than your more traditional methods.
The Back to Close add-on for Firefox adds a simple ergonomic feature to Firefox I am sure a lot of people will enjoy. When you are browsing via the browser or via a tab, if there is no history to go “back” to via the back button – it displays a “close” button instead.
This simple change adds functionality back to the toolbar. The extension also works with mouse gestures and and by configuring the back button on your mouse (if you have one) to the Alt + Left Arrow keyboard combination. Users can also decide whether to show the toolbar icon via the options button in the add-on manager.
