How do I change, or is there a way to stop the browser from going back a page when i press delete too many times on a box or I haven't managed to click where I thought I had?

You probably mean the Backspace key, whose primary function is to delete a character left of the cursor (in left-to-right mode), the Delete key deletes right of the cursor (or at cursor in a command-line interface). This thread will help you:

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 click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".
