Back button doesn't work the same

Posted

In the past 2-3 years Firefox would save the last page and spot you left off on once you hit the back button. Recently that stopped working. Now when i press the back button it takes me to the previous page but not in the same exact spot where I left off on. What happened?

    Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
  • remove checkmark: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"
