Description

When Torbutton 1.4.1 is enabled in Firefox 6.0.1 the browsers back button ceases to function. Toggling off Torbutton enables the back button to work again. Tested without any other addons loaded and the result is still the same.

That's actually a security feature. See https://www.torproject.org/torbutton/torbutton-faq.html.en#noreloads

You can hit back, while Tor is enabled, on pages that you loaded with Tor enabled. But you can't toggle Torbutton's state and then use normal navigation -- if you could, the webpage could too, which would be bad.

I can't hit back on pages I have loaded with Tor enabled, that's the problem.

On further examination I had one Addon called "samfind Bookmarks Bar 2.2.3" enabled which was conflicting with Torbutton 1.4.1. Once I disabled this addon it worked fine and I was able to navigate correctly with Tor enabled. My appologies for not noticing this addon was enabled.
