back button doesn't work
Hi

I use IE8 and as of this post am on server 6. Please don't tell me to use another browzer...

Once I leave the main page, of this forum, and click on an individual section/forum the back button doesn't revert back, it only refreshes the flash add at the top right. If I click the dropdown arrow to the right of the back and forward buttons and select the main page it works fine.

This is the only site this happens on.

Use another browser.

I'm posting this using IE8 and cannot reproduce the problem. The back button works fine for me and I'm on server 6 as well.

Have you tried logging out and clearing cookies?

I can't recreate the browzer (IE8) problem either, Wowzer.

May try having a look at your add-ons in addition to Cookie's advice.

I have logged out and cleared the cache completely. This happens logged in or not. No doubt something on my end but very puzzleing. What puzzles me as much as anything is that this is the only site this this happens with..? I have just downloaded Opera and am trying to sort my way thru that. This was posted from Opera and as you can see I haven't even figger out how to increase the font size yet...

Did you check out your enabled/disabled add-ons?

You can also reset ie settings. May be worth a shot.

Could this be caused by the forum counter? I remember having a similar problem a while back. Had to add that counter to my Restricted Sites in IE.

I don't know why that would have an affect on the browser though.

Chris,

Do you have that site in your Restricted Sites on the Security tab, or the sites listed under the Privacy tab or in the hosts file?

It did though. Adding it to the Restricted Sites fixed it right up.

I don't have it in the Restricted sites but it is blocked under the Privacy Tab and in the hosts file so I guess that amounts to the same thing. That's why I'm curious if Chris has those entries.

Plus I'm too lazy to remove them to test it (at least for tonight).
