If xev prints FocusIn and FocusOut events as a result of you pressing
the Back/Forward keys, then some other program has "grabbed" those keys.
Possibly you (or someone) has configured Metacity to grab the keys.

You should be able to check what keys metacity has grabbed using this

gconftool-2 -R /apps/metacity/global_keybindings | grep -v disabled

If you see F19 or F20 in the output, you need to change metacity's
keybindings.  Metacity doesn't have a nice interface for this, so I
suggest using gconf-editor to do it.
