I use Firefox today and prefer to use as much keyboard shortcuts as possible. If i for example read the news i can in Firefox use either Alt+Left arrow or the Backspace key to go one step back.

 

In Edge (77.0.189.3) i can only use Alt+Left arrow. Personally i prefer to use one (1) key instead of a combination of two (2) keys to go one step back.

 

Are there any plans to add the Backspace key as an option as well?

@Roger-1362 I know there are extensions out there that allow you to use backspace to go back to previous pages.  I will submit your feature request to the team to have this built-in.
