Forward - Backward Hotkeys
What the heck is the keys that I push that jumps ahead?

 10:01 pm on May 9, 2007 (gmt 0)

I'm kind of embarrassed to ask such a 101 question but I'm wasting a lot of time searching and reading the wrong info.

Basically, I'm running a Sony Vaio TX770P (not sure if this matters - maybe Windows). When I type I often somehow push something that forces my Firefox to go back. Often this causes me to lose everything I've typed which I have to type again.

Anyone know what causes this in Windows? Or maybe it's something Sony incorporated?

I've hit this button for the last time....hopefully. :)

maybe <ALT>-<LEFT ARROW>?

The Backspace key does that on my keyboard in Firefox.

Are you using a laptop? I've had instances on someone's laptop where I was typing and similar things happened. I believe it was due to my palm rubbing oh so slightly against the touch pad. If I'm not mistaken, I believe that that computer can navigate using different motions on the touch pad. :)

Yes it is a laptop. I shut off the touchpad to avoid hitting it (I drag as well).

I see the Alt+Left and right do what I'm asking...it's weird that I'm able to hit that combination of keys so often? I must REALLY drag my palms!

Thanks for the help gang.
