Backspace
« on: November 08, 2005, 12:03:59 AM »
Grrrrr....This is getting increasingly annoying...I can be typing quite happily, (with it actually typing) and I make a mistake, backspace...Oops.

It can sometimes happen when a lil messenger window thing (bottom right) pops up...

Does anyone know of a way to disable shortcut keys, such as backspace, in my browser (Mozilla Firefox 1.0.7), because I can find no way to do it...

stop hitting backspace

(if u cant do #2) pop the backspace key off keyboardand pour rubber cement or glue into hole, permenently sealing it and solving your problem

Hmm...If I had been looking for a joke then I would hav asked you : )

Seeing as this is seriously annoying me, I think I'll pass your advice.

It does the same on IE. Plus IE is a disease ridden crap hole.

If you're opening a link that you are scared of pushing backspace on, there is a simple fix. For firefox (and IE) just simply right click the link and on the pull down menu will be the option of "Open Link in a New Window" or "Open Link in a New Tab". If you choose the open them with EITHER of those, then there will not be a Backspace option since there SHOULD be nothing that was opened BEFORE that. If you dont understand, I'll post some ScreenShots.

I know that. Don't talk to me as if I'm simple : )  I always forget to do that though. I was just wondering if there is a way to disable it...


And IE blows.

o0O I have another problem...My Firefox just screwed up and neither me or my very IT orientated brother in law can fix it....I've ran safe mode, uninstalled, reinstalled, cleaned registry, and everything I can think of.
Everytime I try and open it, my computer freezes and I have to end the process. No idea whats going on...

Can anyone help? Or recommend a new browser? I am HAVING to use shitbox IE, which I am not pleased about.
