Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

For as long as I can remember, I have been using space to scroll a web
page, and backspace to scroll back up.  Space still works in Firefox 3,
but backspace doesn't.  This is a frustrating regression, as the
alternative scrolling keys are a lot harder to hit (Fitts' law applies
to the keyboard too, I guess!)
