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

Those key combinations do nothing on my system.

Try Alt+⇦ or Ctrl+[ or Backspace or Shift+Scroll down shortcuts for going back one page. See: http://www.7is7.com/software/firefox/shortcuts.html (scroll down to "Web Navigation" section, then see "Back one page").


Your version of Java is out of date and has known security issues. You should update the plugin.

Thanks for the keyboard shortcuts ... New Problem. I attempted the Java update as warned, but it won't work. I get an error message during installation saying "Bin\awt.dll not found. However a file of same name found. No update done since contents do not match. Then I get another box saying Error 1722, Problem with installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. I tried uninstalling previous updates from Add ons, but I get the same result.

Thanks!

Uninstall the currently installed Java versions via the Windows Control Panel > Add and Remove Programs". (Sounds like you were trying to uninstall using Firefox Tools > Add-ons; that is not the place to do the un-install.)

Install the latest Java version. Download installer from:

  • http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
    • click on JRE under "Java" download or click "Download JRE" button
    • select Platform (OS) - in your case choose "Windows"
    • check box "I agree to the....License Agreement"
    • click file under "Windows Offline Installation" (currently: jre-6u22-windows-i586.exe)
    • save to hard drive (Desktop so you can find it)
    • close browser and run installer you saved to Desktop
  • After install, check your plugin versions: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/
