not sure if this what you want
ctrl + h (history)
you can also right click on links and choose "open in new tab" then all you have to do is go back to url in the other tab

nah, more like when that message comes up when it failed to load a page, then you click ok and there is no url in the address bar. how do i get it there so all i need to press is go or refresh.

Does the URL not return if you click the Back button (or press the Backspace key)? What about using the Esc key? From memory those two work in Opera so may work in FF as well.

The Firefox extension your looking for is Show failed URL (http://www.pikey.me.uk/mozilla/?extension=sfu). You'll also want to enable error pages instead of annoying dialog messages (http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/tips#beh_errorpages).
