That makes sense. Not sure what the official terminology is, but I call the view buttons back/forward and the player buttons previous/next. You could also add drop downs to those to skip back to a previous or following track in the playlist.

I'm certainly talking about the developer solution. Combining the two buttons in the skin wouldn't work, because they have 2 separate drop downs. If you checkout FF3 or IE8 they use a single drop down with the current page marked in the list. You can then go forward or backwards in a single list.

I very much dislike this combining of the back & forward in Firefox, I prefer them separated

I doubt that skinners could do this, this is a feature the developers would need to add.

thats a skinning request, and with the buttons being able to use different parts for different things it is possible to do, i just don't know of any being done in the skins, and most don't like the one button now for the play pause.
but maybe one of the other skinners will be or is now working on it.? :-?

How about combining the back and forward buttons to a single button like Firefox 3 and IE 8? Definitely a very minor usability thing.
