If I go to an older version of the Firefox browser on Win 10, can I use the ”Backspace” key shortcut?

The action for the backspace key to navigate back or forward in history is set via the browser.backspace_action pref on the about:config page if that is what you mean.

To disable or enable the Backspace keyboard shortcut, you can change the browser.backspace_action pref on the about:config page.

0 goes Back/Forward
1 act like PgUp/PgDown
2 and other values, nothing

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".
