Browser "back" button intermittently not working (only on CH)
- Steve Green Jul 28, 2013 07:51 AM
This is in current FF (22.0) on W7. I think it mainly happens when trying to get back to "Current Discussions" from a particular thread. I click the back button, and a destination URL comes up in the little window at the bottom, but the tab on top says "connecting", with the little green spinning circle, but nothing ever happens. I have to click on "Chowhound" on the toolbar to return to where I was.
Again, never on other sites; just the CH site.
So I'm the only one with this problem? Paging Engineering?
As an update, it's not just in "Current Discussions". Seems to randomly happen when trying to return to a board category from a thread.
It's been happening to me for a long time now, but I figured it was just b/c I am on my work computer and using an older version of IE. Doesn't ever happen on my macbook or ipad at home...
It appears this only happens if you have read all the way through a discussion and are at the bottom of the page--at least that's what I've been able to reproduce here. We'll see if we can pinpoint the issue. In the meantime, at the bottom of every discussion, there's a "Back to [BOARD NAME]" button, which should get you where you wanted to go without issue.

Except the board that the thread is categorized in, is not always (or usually) where I came from, or where I want to go. More often, I'm clicking from the "Chowhound" board which shows the most recent threads.
FWIW, just went from the bottom of a thread, to a "Discussions you might like" linked thread, but when I tried to click back out of that "thread" (which contained exactly one entry), the browser hung.
