Here they don't, but on several forums, like forum.cyanogenmod.org.
Forum or seamonkey bug?

Can you describe your problem better? Which keys?
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

I have defined the backspace key to go back in history (is this default?). This should only work if I'm not editing text in a text field. But in some text fields I can't edit text because when I press backspace seamonkey goes back instead of deleting text

Backspace is always "back" in navigation... been that way in browsers for as long as I can remember. Also for as long as I can remember if you are in a text field and you press backspace at the top left, or press it too many times so it erases all of the characters in a text field it will go back. It's also certainly possible for a website to do something really silly like create a custom text input box and therefore the browser doesn't know it's a text field and it goes back anyway. Of course I can't test it there because that forum seems to require membership. Another possibility is that your backspace key is sticking or an extension or keyboard driver is causing weird behavior.

You also might try updating to SeaMonkey 2.35 and see if the problem is still there in the current release.

It's a bad add-on not detecting that cursor is in text input. (Key-config)

Got a source for that? Also, you can upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.38 now.
