Disabling (annying) internet-back and forward keys

Does anybody know if it is possible to disable those two buttons in the arrow area of the keyboard, that makes you go back or forward on an internet browse?

 

They have caused me a lot of frustration when writing webmails, when accidentally hitting them while using the arrow buttons, and therefore loosing the content of my web-form.

 

best

Re: Disabling (annying) internet-back and forward keys

Keyboard Customizer Utility should be able to take care of that problem:

Not sure what system you have but if you're correctly posting this to the X series forum, then that link should help.
