I’m a big fan of using the keyboard for tasks instead of always relying on the mouse. In Ubuntu, Firefox wasn’t honouring the use of backspace to take me back a page. I found a fix here that surprisingly still works.

In short, open a new tab and type

about:config

Search for backspace. Double click on “browser.backspace_action” and change the value to 0.
