    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    "back" button misbehaving?

    I thought I was imagining it at first but I'm not. When I'm doing internet searches using Google, if I hit "back" it reloads the current page. There's lots about it on the web, but I couldn't find any fixes that weren't a bit extreme.

    Has anyone else got this problem?

    When confronted with his highly annoying bit of programming on websites, I find a quick double tap on the back button normally works

    Failing that, I've never come across a computer yet that's any good at kick boxing...

    It's an annoying trait of some sites. Microsoft is especially guilty of this. The thinking is that you might hit 'back' by 'mistake' and therefore as soon as you hit the main page, you are redirected to a content page. By hitting 'back' you go back to the landing page, which redirects you back to the content page. It's very annoying.

    If this continues to happen, check the navigation history on your browser (sometimes there is a little drop down showing you the last ten page impressions). With Microsoft I have noticed anywhere from 3 to 6 pages back in history that you have to navigate past - just to get back to the search engine. Just clicking 'back' won't work - you need to navigate 3,4,5 or 6 pages back in the history.

    Whoever thought that up needs slapping with a wet fish.
    Cheers!

    "back" button misbehaving?

    I've had same thing recently, I thought it was another PITA 'feature', but changed workstation and it didn't happen.

    I was used Citrix VM so should all have behaved the same. Please do advise is you get an answer.

    Ps it isn't the stupid JavaScript trick to disable BS I tried that.
