Dear Support Team, since the update before the last it is no longer possible to jump back within a page or to a former page with the backspace key. This is, at least to me, very annoying. Aspecially when i am using my laptop. Personally i prefer using short cuts rather than the mouse or touchpad. Somehow i suppose that function was disabled through the updates. Would you please look in to this subject and enable that function again? I´d appreciate it very much.

Kind regards, Ilona aka Nellifer5

Hi,

To prevent user data loss when filling out forms, we’ve disabled the Backspace key as a navigation shortcut for the back navigation button. To re-enable the Backspace keyboard shortcut, you can change the about:config preference browser.backspace_action to 0. You can also use the recommended Alt + Left arrow (Command + Left arrow on Mac) shortcut instead.
