Hmm... to 1), that's interesting, that you have that backspace prob in KM1.6 version, it was supposed to happen only in gecko1.8....
Anyway, if that happens click the "Forward" button, with some luck your text may be still there, but perhaps depends from cache settings and/or site.
And if you remember it while typing, a quick on-the-fly workaround is to press SHIFT+Backspace for deleting. For a permanent solution you can remove the default "Go Back" shortcut from the "Backspace" key:
Edit > Configuration > Accelerators
Add this line and restart:
Better but slightly more complicated: Remove that shortcut in all profiles by default and instead of "Backspace" use "SHIFT-Backspace" as shortcut for "Go Back". For this edit the file K-Meleon\defaults\settings\accel.cfg and change
VK_BACK = ID_NAV_BACK
#VK_BACK = ID_NAV_BACK
SHIFT VK_BACK = ID_NAV_BACK
By the way there's another default shortcut for flipping back pages: ALT+Left Arrow. Works fine, you just need both hands for it, unlike SHIFT+Backspace. At least on my notebook ;-)
PS: There is brandnew beta version for KM1.6 on the download page, if you'd like to check it out.
