Noob question on moving


I’ve installed HiFi and I’m trying to light the fuse in the orientation phase of getting going. My problem is that I’m in a small space, so I’m operating from a seated position. I can click the lighter and bring it closer, but for some reason when I try to light it and send it forward, it won’t light and instead pushes me backwards and further away from my target. I think what I need to do is move forward towards the fuse, but I’m unable to move aside from rotating my view with my touchpad. I’m kinda stuck here and if anyone can get me going in the right direction, I’d really appreciate it.
