[FireFox] Faster Back/Forward instead of reloading

How can I make the back or forward load instantly, instead of having to wait til it reloads? I thought one of the versions of FF would have it in there, but it's not working for me.
I have 16 gb of ram, so that's not the problem. What am I missing??

You should vote for the Colostomy Bag that I'm voting for! This one appears to be better than that other one!

Mine doesn't refresh just reloads instantly. Have you turned off the cache?

Sequestration must be a great idea. Obama thought of it.

For back I use "Middle click to go back"

»addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox···go-back/

I have'nt found anything for going forward

I see if you right-click in a page you can go back/forward and reload

Guess I am missing something! I did not turn off the cache.

I didn't mean to do so. I didn't and FF works correctly for me.

I just came across this:
"Firefox caches each tab you have open in such a way that they don't have to be re-parsed when you use the back and forward buttons to flip through history. This cache is different from the memory cache. The default is set to 50, meaning Firefox will remember the last 50 pages opened by each tab. If you have the habit of reusing tabs (as opposed to opening new tabs), the browser session history can grow to fantastic sizes.

So what you should do? Close the tab when you are done with a page and open a fresh tab for a new page. Alternatively, you can reduce the number of pages Firefox keeps in cache. To do this, open about:config and set the desired value in browser.sessionhistory.max_entries. A value of 10 should do."
Maybe check the entry?

I do that by setting this in about:config:
browser.cache.check_doc_frequency = 2 (never)
