Once upon a time, right-clicking on whitespace in Firefox (to bring up the context menu) and then pressing the keyboard's b button, was equivalent to pressing the browser's back button.
IMO, this is an incredibly convenient shortcut for minimising wrist movements, and consequently RSI, compared to the alternatives* because the right-click button is usually immediately under a digit of the right hand, and the b button is so close to the index finger of the left hand (assuming home position on a QWERTY keyboard). So, it requires just one click, one key press, and negligible movement.
However, over the last few years, Firefox has changed so that pressing b while that context menu is active instead bookmarks the page. This is not what I want.
How can I disable the new functionality and re-enable the old functionality?
* For anyone interested, the alternatives that I know about are:
- Alt+left (only two key presses, but much more wrist movement and digit movement required compared to my preferred solution);
- right-click, then navigate or mouse to the back-arrow button on the context menu, then left-click it or press enter (at least three key presses and much more wrist movement and digit movement required compared to my preferred solution);
- move mouse to back button, then left-click it (much more wrist movement required compared to my preferred solution, and bad from the standpoint of Fitt's law).
