Back arrow doesn't work

Postby Bob McCarty » Sat Jun 30, 2012 2:24 pm

About 50% of the time when I have finished reading a post, the back arrow will not return me to the "view new posts" section. What I have to do is scroll up until I can click on Board Index, and then click on "view new posts" again. I haven't had this problem with any other internet sites. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Bob

Bob, I always "right click - open in new tab" [or window] on each post I want to read.

Bob,
Try using the Backspace key. Unless something is hosed up, this should work

no problem for me, the back arrow always works. Using Firefox.

Roy, The backspace key works, as does Dave's method. That still doesn't explain the nonfunctioning back arrow, but I guess I can live with that. I'm using IE.

Thanks, Bob

Which version of IE, Bob?

I did a search for this and got this hit. Supposedly, the Bing accelerator was culprit for the guy that did the post. He deleted the Bing accelerator.

In Ie9 go to tools\manage add-ons. Make sure Google is the default search. Then check accelerators and disable Bing entries and Live Mail if you don't use it.

Roy, I have IE 8. Neither Bing or Livemail were enabled. there is sure a lot of software that must have come with automatic updates that I don't the purpose of. Thanks for looking.

I like the one response that he fixed the problem by switching to Firefox. ^_^ I personally fixed some problems by switching to Google Chrome. Love it. Much faster on the forum as well. Takes a little getting used to, but have grown fond of it. Sure hope you are able to fix your problem. Let me know if I can help in some way. Maybe the top of the IE carb needs flattening. :{_}: :{_}:
