Issue #8665 wontfix

created an issue

in source browser page i can select and open a file or dir with keyboard shortcuts (j,k,o,enter) I think It's good to have backspace to move back from opened file or path (i know I can use ali+left arrow but I think backspace is better)

    It seems to me that browsers, e.g., Chrome and Firefox, already make BACKSPACE go back to the previous page.

    A quick test of BACKSPACE in the source browser works as expected to navigate back through the directory/file structure.

    What browser are you using in which you don't see this behaviour?

    firefox 26.0
    ubuntu 13.10
    active keyboard layout = en 

    I've created a new profile and backspace doesn't work there too.

    also the keyboard shortcuts reload the whole page, I was more thinking about something ajaxy for browsing (just like when I use mouse)

    After testing in Firefox, the backspace button already works as you would expect (it does not reload the page). It sounds like a problem with the browser not catching backspace properly though.

    Cheers, Brian
