Block the 'Delete goes back' action in Firefox
Authored by: allenwatson on May 14, '07 02:24:56PM

In both browsers, I have been caught by surprise when I position the cursor in a URL in the address field, desiring to edit it, and press "Delete/Backspace", and the browser executes a "Back" command instead. I do not know why sometimes this happens and sometimes not. I'd prefer to disable the "Delete=Back" key assignment entirely to avoid the difficulty. After all, there are two other key combos for doing "Back", such as Cmd-Left Arrow and Cmd-[.
