From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011011
BuildID:    2001101117

From 0.9.4 onwards I found that the backspace on the keyboard does not work. I
have not observed it in prior versions of mozilla.

I had Netscape 6.1 till y'day which was based on 0.9.2. Backspace took me to the
previous page.

Today I downloaded NS6.2 which, I believe is based on 0.9.4. Now I am not able
to use backspace key. 

Currently I am using Mozilla 0.9.5 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open any webpage and click on links from there
2.Press the BACKSPACE Key
3.The previous screen is not obtained.

Expected Results:  Mozilla should take me to the previous screen.
As mentioned in bug 60102, backspace was causing problems in plugins (for
instance, hitting backspace in a Flash form would take the user back). So, that
functionality has been taken out.

Marking WONTFIX. 

Of course, you can still use Alt-left and Alt-right for Back/Fwd.
