keyboard commands and mozilla dont work

what do i need to do to make things like the back arrow and F5 work properly in mozilla in debian, or linux in general. i have noticed that in opera on my RH9 box they dont work either, but the mouse gestures work fine in Opera.

in windows i can use the back arrow to go back pages, i can use the F5 key to refresh a page, but under linux neither of them work. its annoying enough that my scroll mouse does not work at all in debian (some generic older PS2 mouse with a little tab-type scroll on it) and to top it off i have to use the MOUSE for everything while browsing...

i find this extreemly annoying. i am useing 1.6 mozilla in Debian Sarge distro.

thanks for the help.

ok after 48hr i find it hard to beilve that there is zero way to enable the back button, and F5 to work in linux with mozilla or any other browser for that matter like they do in windows.

You can use alt+left arrow key to go back a page, or alt+right arrow key to go forward a page. I know it's not as nice as just hitting the backspace key, but it's better than using the mouse, well I like it better..
