The history is stored in the registry and presumably got wiped. The
repo browser needs a URL, and with no history available it has nothing
to go on. What would it browse to. You will find that Internet
Explorer has no browse button either, for the same reason.

Once you specify a repository then you can browse *within* that repository.
