    Hi @Fabler2

    Shortcuts are awesome workaround but not a solution to clicking problem.
    I want to correct myself about searching bookmarks, it seems to work fast now, but sometimes it freezes, it doesn't appear as a constant problem.
    Just checked Edge on another machine and it has a switch to show History Button on the toolbar. I'm sure it's not available on the other laptop. Will have to check later.

    Could be your browser is out of date on another machine, recent updates brought several new configurable options.

    Thank you for sharing you insights, I do use OS shortcuts a lot, but not browser shortcuts because like everyone else browsers are subject to change so we need to learn software specific shortcuts a new.

    Anyway I think I'll stay with MS edge for the foreseeable future so here is a list to add to bookmarks:

    For completeness also for OS:

    The original Edge (now referred to as 'Legacy Edge') was launched with in the original release of Windows 10. Its design remit was to be fast and lean, but came in for a lot of criticism as being virtually devoid of any useful features. Its code name while in development was, after all, 'Spartan'. That one could be said to 'suck', it was fast but something of a 'feature-free zone'.
    Microsoft has issued the very last update for "Legacy Edge" (or Spartan Edge) this March 2021 and will no longer be updated nor supported. MS will replace Legacy Edge with Chromium Edge with either the late March 2021 preview updates or the April patch Tuesday 2021 updates for Win10:

    Chromium Edge is much faster than Firefox.

    Personally, I was pleasantly surprised by Edge as opposed to the rumors on the internet and bad reviews. It's snappy, minimalistic, fast and modern. And I like the start page with news, weather an whatnot. Very nice indeed. On Linux it's my favourite choice for said reasons, on Windows however I decided to stick with Vivaldi.
    My long time favourite SeaMonkey finally found good replacements.

    I ditched Yandex in favor of Edge, but regretted it a few months later, so I switched to Chrome.
    Edge is made by MS, needless to say more? MS software always seems half-done, unpolished.
