The Firefox help on this subject titled "N900 Keyboard Shortcuts" indicate that the either Cntr + Left Arrow or Cntr + Backspace equates to hitting the "Back" button ... Neither work. Perhaps this advice is a remnant from an earlier version that no longer works ... This is an important shortcut for those of us with repetitive motion strain ... Or for using a touch pad ...

Thanks

Latest Firefox uses THREE TIMES as much RAM as Firefox 3.6, and is slower to boot.

My laptop has limited RAM - about 2GB. Of the browsers I've tried (Chrome, Safari, Firefox), Firefox uses the least RAM, but it still uses around 1GB of RAM to display about 10 tabs (gmail, facebook, reader, and assorted other websites) - this seems insanely high.

Thinking back, this didn't seem to be a problem "back in the day", so to speak, so I tried installing Firefox 3.6 again.

Lo and behold, with the same addons and the same tabs open, Firefox 3.6 is using 300MB of RAM where Firefox 21 used 980MB of RAM. In addition, navigation is noticeably snappier in Firefox 3.6 - probably because it doesn't have to page to disk as often (which would often lock up my computer using Firefox 21).

I thought that newer versions were supposed to improve memory performance, not triple the required memory...
