There's a hack that I want to do on Firefox, however, I'm not sure how to do it. In Firefox in a Windows environment you're able to hit the backspace key and go back a page. I notice this isn't the same in Linux. I looked in the options and can't seem to find anything that will allow me to do this. Has anyone done this or know where I can look to find it?
One more thing, this one isn't so big but it would be convenient, when you click in the address bar it doesn't highlight everything automatically like it does in a Windows environment. Anyone know how I could achieve this?
Thanks a ton,
p.s. I'm using Ubuntu 7.10.

Though it's been tested on windows platform but some of them especially navigation are working
if your in linux environment. As for your concern regarding highlighting the link, you can do it by just clicking the icon in the address bar.
The address bar bit does help, thank you. However, I would like to know how to change the hot key for going back a page. As lazy and spoiled as it sounds, I would like to change it to the backspace key. Anyone else have any ideas?
Found what I was looking for with the backspace. In a Firefox address bar, type in: about:config This will bring up a new page. In the filter bar, type in browser.backspace_action Where it says value, right click and click on modify and change the value to 0. This will allow you to use the backspace button to go back a page. Hope this helps everyone else.
HAH. Now I'm getting somewhere. I figured out how to make it highlight all on one click. In the same about:config page, go to the filter and type in: browser.urlbar.clickselectsall Right click on the value and click on toggle. This will enable you to click once in the address bar and select everything.
