Why doesn't my Backspace key work in Firefox?

First-time Fedora user, first hour of use. Running Fedora-Workstation-live-x86_24-1.2 from DVD (ISO & DVD burn both verified). Not yet installed to HDD, No change to default GUI options. Thinkpad T420.

I'm used to Firefox letting me go back to the previous webpage in the current tab's history, as in many other browsers also, by simply pressing the Backspace key. However, that isn't working in Firefox right now. Nothing coming up on a web search for this issue that I see.

Is this more likely to be a hardware issue, a live boot issue (resolved by full HDD install of Fedora), or some other issue? Thanks for any suggestions/resources, in advance.
