How to disable the "back Space" button from sending me back to the previous url on Firefox?

When I am typing an email, facebook post, etc.and I want to delete a part of what I have typed, the moment I hit the back space it takes me away from the page I am on and deletes all content I was working on. I really don't need or want this feature since there is that way easy "back" button at the top of every page when Firefox is open. How do I get this hot key to stop what its is doing and let me use it for what it was actually meant to be used for..deleting text?

    In the location bar (where it says "search or enter address") type in about:config

    Type in backspace in the Search field.

    browser.backspace.action should be set to 2. (default is 0)
