While I know there are bugs for them, I don't understand this request. I 
think those buttons are used by a really tiny fraction of our users (we 
can verify that with specific telemetry), making an add-on to add them 
is probably matter of spending 1 hour of work.
Moreover the bookmarks sidebar can be shown through the bookmarks menu 
opened from the widget. Adding an history sidebar toggle to the History 
button subview could also be done easily.
