Fix broken backspace in Firefox (for Linux atleast)

Howto Fix Backspace annoyance and Mozilla Firefox for Linux

Ran into this little annoyance while flipping around in my Mozilla Firefox in Linux. Being used to Windows I keep hitting backspace to return the the previous webpage.. but in Mozilla Firefox for Linux it is not possible, by design I think, at least not by default.

This issue can be easilly fixed

  1. Open "about:config"
  2. Search for " browser.backspace_action "
  3. Change the default value (mine was 2(two)) to 0(zero)

Ths change should be immidiate, try it :)
