how to get firefox to return to previous link and not reload it

When viewing content from a page in a tab, clicking the back button causes the previous page to reload in stead of just returning to it. That makes it impossible (without opening the info in a new tab) to return to a page and click the next item you want to view because it is no longer there. Also, sometimes you get the message that the previous page is not available with a "try again" button. I just want the back button to return to the previous page and NOT reload it. I'm hoping there's an about:config setting that fixes this. Version 32.0.3 TIA

In order to change your Firefox Configuration please do the following steps :

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise! to continue to the about:config page.
