Linux Tip: Firefox Backspace

So… I recently reinstalled Ubuntu (version 8.10 this time) to find a very solid piece of Software. Everything worked out of the box, even Compiz.

Anyway… there were one thing that was making me crazy. Firefox 3 didn’t use Backspace key as a shortcut to the Back function, i.e., pressing backspace didn’t make you return to the previous web page. This is something I use A LOT on Windows on any browser, so not having this possibility is a major turn of. I don’t even know why the hell Mozilla don’t turn this option as default since this is like something taken for granted, at least for me.

Anyway… the good news is it’s a very simple thing to fix.

Weave – Mozilla Sync Addon

If you have read my post about Firefox Addons you saw that I made reference to Google Browser Sync. Google Browser Sync is a Firefox extension that continuously synchronizes your browser settings – including bookmarks, history, persistent cookies, and saved passwords – across your computers. This is very useful if you more then 1 computer, like a desktop and a laptop. What happens is that Google is no longer developing this addon, so it won’t be available for Firefox 3.

Firefox is one of the most used browsers nowadays. Firefox has been a great browser since release, but each new version builds upon the previous one, improving, speed increases, it to what has probably become the most feature complete existing browser.
