This add-on is simple to use. Simply install it in your browser and go surfing the internet. When you press the backspace key on your keyboard while viewing a webpage, the current tab will go to the previous page. It’s crucial to remember that, when editing areas within the document, pressing the backspace key only deletes characters and does not function as a go-back button.

3. How can I turn off the extension?

To deactivate the extension, simply click on the toolbar button once. The toolbar icons will be colorless when the add-on is inactive. Reactivating the add-on will change its status to active again. To permanently disable an add-on, go to your browser’s extensions page and then select the disable option next to the name of the extension you wish to remove.

No, this add-on does not have any options or settings to change. There is only one button in the toolbar for you to use to turn on or off the add-on.

5. What happens when the mouse cursor is in an editable spot?

When the mouse cursor is in an editable area, backspace works normally. In other words, it removes characters from right to left (relative to the mouse cursor).

6. Is there a version for the Firefox browser?

This feature is incorporated into your browser by default in Firefox, and there’s no need to download a addon. Backspace functionality was removed from Chrome and Opera recently, therefore this add-on may be used to restore it.
