Description:

The file I uploaded was just a text file describing an improvement I'd like to see in KDE and Konqueror. The full text appears here:
====================================
Firefox, Nautilus, and Epiphany all have down-arrow buttons next to their Back, Forward, and Up buttons which allow faster jumping around in that tab's navigation history. In addition to going back and forth by one page at a time, you can also jump by two or more pages (backward, for example) in the list of pages visited. To do this, you quickly click on that down arrow, whereupon a dropdown menu appears, then you quickly click on whatever page in that menu you want. All done in less than a second.

With Konqueror, it's a little more complicated. The down arrow is incorporated into the Back, Forward, and Up buttons, and you must click and hold your left mouse button on that browser button for about a second before the dropdown menu appears. Only then can you choose which page in the list to go to.

I'd like to see the addition of separate dropdown menu buttons for each of the navigation buttons in the browser and in other parts of KDE that use this type of button.

For reference, the attached screenshots were taken within Firefox 2.0+, Epiphany 2.18.3, and Konqueror 3.5.8-9.fc7 Fedora (Using KDE 3.5.8-7.fc7 Fedora).

That's only half the truth ;)
You can get it immediately by
click button -> move mouse, but that's not that ergonomically then just pressing a down-arrow, so I really like the improved Konqueror :)

IIRC this has already been implemented in Konqueror 4.0.0, and I think this won't get into KDE 3.5.x
