    Using the backbutton to go to previous page


    I am running FreeBSD 6.2 and it has a working version of Firefox on it. Normally I press the backbutton / backspace to go to the previous page, but that does not work in my case. What configuration do I need to do to make the backspace take me to the previous page?

    Go to your about:config page by entering that into the address bar. Enter 'backspace' into the search bar so that it brings back the following entry
    Code:
    browser.backspace_action
    The value for that should be set to '1', change that to '0'. Instantly the backspace will work again
