    I am now starting to use safari as firefox is slowing down my macs.

    I got used to mostly how safari is different to firefox.
    One thing that annoys me a little is:

    with firefox if two finger click on back button I can see my pervious steps. Not so in safari

    also I can hit F5 to refresh firefox not in safari.

    I can hit backspace in firefox to got back one page, not in safari.

    Not big issues but is there another way to do same operations?

    thanks in advance guys as known you know the answers.

    Command-tilde (left of the "1" key) moves between open Safari windows. Though this works with most apps.

    In general I am not a fan of the touchpad swiping things, but somehow I didn't disable 2-finger left and right, for forward and back pages. That may work for you.

    thank you the 2 finger swipe does it!
    That gives me forward and back although not the list of previous pages like I get in firefox
