When I am in any website and hit the backspace it goes to the previous page or to the home page. I can't find anything in the settings to change it. Anyone know what is going on?

Chosen solution

You can set browser.backspace_action = 2 on the about:config page to disable the backspace action.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
