backspace in firefox on ubuntu

Since I’ve installed Ubuntu on my laptop I’m happy with the overall system performance and the very good usability. But one thing drove me crazy – The backspace key didn’t work in Firefox :(

You might think that’s no big deal, but it really is – try to search on google without the ability to go back to the search results by pressing the backspace key…

…so I’ve searched for a solution and found it pretty fast:

  1. Go to ‘about:config‘ in Firefox
  2. change the value ‘browser.backspace_action’ to ’0′

So, this little bug in the default configuration of the Firefox browser on ubuntu cost me 5 minutes…
…If you would count all the minutes from all users that are trying/using Firefox it would be a really big amount of wasted time :(
