Great analysis, and thanks for bringing this up.
I agree with you, as it doesn't make sense starting any design work on
this if we don't know where it might land or be used.

As I suggested in that bug, we should (if possible) leverage the native
FF browser UI to inherit back/forward buttons, and maybe even the Home
page button, redirecting to the first page.
We could have a minimal UI with those elements and a disabled URL bar so
we don't need to worry about web browsing withing TB.
I don't know how "easy" is to inherit FF UI and tweak it for our
purpose, without implementing a hacky and non clean solution.

I think we should focus on this extremely important aspect, and once we
have a solid understanding of the issues and downfalls, we can take a
decision and find solutions to the other questions.
