I get the behaviour described on my intel iMac running OS X 10.5.6 and  
Mathematica 7.0.1. I don't have other options to test. I don't think  
that PowerPC/Intel makes any difference here.

The Show Toolbar menu item adds the toolbar. To customize it, you have  
to do the non-standard (for Mac OS) right click on the grey background  
to the toolbar to get the customize toolbar item in the contextual  
menu. If you don't have a mouse or trackpad with a right menu, you can  
use control-click to bring up the contextual menu.

Oddly, I don't have the back button as the default, but with the  
customize panel, the default toolbar, which you can drag up to replace  
what is there, *does* have the back button.
