    Back button

    Is anybody else having trouble that the 'back' button doesn't seem to work... i.e. after you finish reading a forum thread you cannot 'go back' to the previous page?

    Had that happen a few times and i run firefox as well. I went into 'tools' and 'clear history' then cleared everything option. Whether that sorted it or it was the computers time of the month,.. who knows..Mike.

    Mine will work occasionally, then not at all. I'm using firefox 5.0. It's a little annoying.

    Re: Back button

    Yup - it seems to be a firefox thing. On Explorer now without a problem. It doesn't apear to be every page, only some... as Monkey S said it seems to be where a large number of posts exist. When you look at history it has reloaded the page over and over again, so you have to 'go back' dozens of pages to get back to the page you came from. (not something anybody should loose sleep over, bit of a first-world problem really)

    I think I have inadvertently started a browser one-up-man-ship contest! I'm just waiting for the Mac evangelists to start tut-tuting at us pc luddites

    Hi,

    Re: Back button

    On Mozilla, did all the clearing of history etc, etc. Still the back button only works sometime. Up to you Frank (or Webram). A virtual beer for he who fixes the problem.

    Gents

    upon reading through your posts, it sounds like to me, you need to go into your internet settings, and find the part about how a page you have visited already, is re-loaded.

    Used to get the problem years ago when on older explorer (xp days) & a friend unchecked or checked a box that made the browser load the page fresh everytime I went on it, instead of loading part of it from memory

    never got the problem again

    hope this makes sense & helps

    I see that you are not spending much time in our neighbourhood lately.. No more problems with back button here after clearing history. BTW, firefox keeps asking me about installing 5.0, but i keep hitting "remind me later" as this version works fine.. Mike.

    Hi Mike

    Just wondering do the other sites have things like adverts/pictures etc, that change every time you go the page

    It was some thing that was changing that caused my problem

    That's what happens when you take a vacation. You opt for real over virtual beer and OMG...the intraweb is hard to come by on a beach. BTW, i'm on Mozilla 5 and it keeps prompting me for 6.

    Holidays during summer? Thats one thing to be frowned upon if anyone requested that here. During winter, as it is here now, businesses can't wait to send their guys away to use up their paid leave. Also, firefox is asking me, or should i say, strongly recommending me to upgrade to 6.0.

    Well, now aren't we upside down. I like my vacation when the temps are 35C+, humidity levels cause you to loose 10kg of weight standing still and the UV is super high. Besides, I'm self employed.

    Argh ! Mike

    According to this

    http://www.refrigeration-engineer.co...-Engineers-Huh

    Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet

    Hmmm, so.. who looks after your customers while your away? If i recall correctly, your guy had a fall, broken pelvis? don't forget the 200+ sunscreen. I have to face up to getting 3 or 4 suspect patches cut out of my back in two weeks time. My GP, believe it or not, is from Newcastle, UK , and is as white as a ghost. "You North Queenslanders" he says, "should be taking extra precautions against sun damage to your skin. Wear a wide brimmed hat, not that cap i see you wear around town".. Well, he's the one with the knife going in my back! ( With reference to another post).

    UGGG, let us know the biopsy results. The wife wants me to get some spots looked at as well. Not good when Uv levels are higher than we have ever seen them but you Ausies are known the world over for your good tans

    I remember back in 87 traveling through the backroads of Nicaragua and meeting some Ausies and the most important thing they carried, in a land with no power, was a blender for mixed drinks and other sun worshiping stuff.

    BTW, my worker is still not back, the pelvis is not healing as well as it should. Not sure what to do there.

    Hey, what's going on here? The left arrow button is giving me trouble again. NO, i haven't upgraded to Firefox 6 yet, but sometimes it works and other times... not. Might go and clear history again and see what happens.

    I just found out that Mozilla 6 won't allow my freebee Avast anti-virus to work so i'm not switching over yet.

    Fishin is nice but those damn Spanish factory trawlers took all our cod and it has never come back in 20 years. I'm stuck getting mackrel or something.
