Abstract: It is known that the first return continuous functions are precisely the Darboux functions in Baire class 1, and that every such function can be changed via a homeomorphism into an approximately continuous function. Here we give two characterizations of the smaller class of universally first return continuous functions, one of which is the capacity of changing such a function via a homeomorphism into an approximately continuous function which is continuous almost everywhere.
