Internet Explorer back button problems

  Muckleface 16:33 21 May 2005


In the past month or so I've had this strange problem with Internet Explorer. On some websites I can click a link which works fine, but then when I click the "Back" button on the toolbar nothing happens. The only way I've found to get round it is to click the "Back" button 3 times, then it takes me back to the previous page as per normal. It only seems to affect certain sites, like click here for example.

Anyone have the same problem or any ideas how to fix it?

Yes... Some websites have "java" scripting that stops you from going back, so you have to click have hundreds of time.... :(

Nothing you can really do, apart from opening links in new windows... To do this, Hold onto "Shift" on your keyboard and then click onto a link.... Then release the "Shift" button....
