"Back" button, still not working right.

Steve Green Jul 7, 2014 06:37 AM

There was a thread on this previously, but has it ever been fixed? I sometimes have to click on the "back" button three or more times to return to the previous page. Only happens on CH.

FF, current version; W7.

    It's twice for me, but only after I post. Win 7 latest Chrome.

      Hi Steve Green and MplsM ary. We're still looking into this bug.

        ALSO, when you are 100 threads down a Board list and read a thread, then use the Back Button, aren't you supposed to be returned so thread #101 is at the top of the screen?

          Mine goes back whenever I ask it to, but the page I go back to takes its time refreshing itself each time, which makes CH slower than the two other sites I read. I wonder if it's a Flash thing. Using CH reminds me of Macy's website, which always forces me to "stop script now."

            Thanks for the hint on how to get around this failure. I use Opera w/Win7 and thought the problem was an Opera quirk. I've been re-navigating to my starting point (my profile or Board's list of recent discussions) each time. Pressing back button multiple times is still faster than that.

              Back button is sporadic--sometimes need to click twice, other times I could like 99 times and it still doesn't work. Using Chrome.

                  Because it's an inconsistent issue (i.e., we can't always reproduce it on our end), it's more difficult to troubleshoot, but we are looking into it.

                    I get this, inconsistently.
