    Pressing backspace definitely goes back a page if that's what you're after.

    If it's not working, make sure you have the 'All Controls' radio button clicked in System Preferences - Keyboard & Mouse - Keyboard shortcuts

    One thing I find with Firefox, is that the UP and Down keys dont scroll slow as does Safari, I have looked at the Pref in Firfox but cant see any options to alter this...........any ideas guys.
    Thanks Chris

    I'll have to try that when I get home from work. I suspect you need to click within the page somewhere for it to work. Though to be honest i find that 2 finger scrolling on the touchpad is the best way to scroll around a page. Really miss that when I have to use my Windows laptop.
