Back button broken in Safari?

Was just posting to the "we hate avatars!!!!!1111!!" thread and after posting, clicked the back button. This resulted in my message being reposted. Did that 4 times in a row. Might want to check that out.

  1. This is still happening.

      1. It just happened to me. I hit the back button because I used to be able to go back to the page I was on before. I hit the back button twice, so I've got my reply 3 times in a row.
        Hoping the moderators will dump my extra posts.

          I don't see three posts from you, and I've seen other people say the same thing, with no multiple posts. I think for some reason, Safari is showing multiple posts when there aren't any.

            Thanks! I was assuming/hoping the moderators were removing the duplicate posts.

              I don't *think* so. It seems to be a Safari thing. I find that using tabs (open a new tab for each thread I am interested in) works great. It would avoid the back button thing.

        2. yeah, i've experienced the same thing. I hit the back arrow and my post appears twice. i quit the browser, get back in and everything is ok. don't know why this happens. when i click on the "back to the whatever board" link this is not an issue.

          1. Thanks for the report, there is definitely an issue with Safari.
