After updating to Firefox 55, my back button is always black like it can be clicked, even though it's a new tab. Any ideas what to do about this?

Thanks,
--Brian

You can start Firefox in Safe mode to check if your problem is caused by an extension or theme (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.
See:
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode

If starting in Safe-mode works then disable your extensions (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or use the option in the Safe-mode window) and re-enable them one by one until you find which one is causing it.
Close and restart Firefox after each change.

Same thing when I open in safe mode. I was already using the default theme. Thanks for helping me troubleshoot this.

Moving to Firefox Builds as version 55 is still pre-release.

I have this issue as well, though specifically the black versus grayed out states are backwards (but not always). For grayed out tabs that have history, I have to right click the Back button to select the prior address. Some tabs are correct though, at least at first; I'm not sure when they 'break' yet.

I put in a bug report for this so hopefully they at least know it's an issue. Thanks.
