Backspace problem, Firefox / IE
« on: May 21, 2010, 10:09:52 AM »

Several of you have lost your posts by pressing the BACKSPACE key while typing your message.  If you are using Firefox, the following link shows you how to disable that function.

Apparently Microsoft does not have a way to control this for Internet Explorer, but you can download software to customize your keyboard assignments... do that at your own risk.

I use Google Chrome, and backspace works like it is supposed too while your cursor is in the body of the message.  It also automatically spell-checks.  If you click outside of the message box, the backspace button will engage the internet function of "go back"

Hope this helps
