I would like to be able to disable this and or configure the key bindings to my own taste. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a page 2. Start typing and make the inputbox lose focus while typing 3. Press backspace Actual Results: Page goes back and information lost or have to reload slow page on slow connetion etc etc... annoyance Expected Results: Nothing to happen when i press backspace
this sounds like something for an extension
Why an extension when this is simply exposing what is already there? %PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla Firefox\res\builtin\platformHTMLBindings.xml ?? <key keycode="VK_BACK" command="cmd_handleBackspace"/> in browser.jar browser.xul ??? If we make this configurable then everybody is happy. I don't like the idea of "YET ANOTHER EXTENSION" for everything, by the time I will be finished I will have more extensions than browser (YET ANOTHER MEDIA PLAYER syndrome)
