It's Adblock. If you disable Adblock by going to tools/add-ons and disable it, then the back button works.

Or it may not be Adblock for you, but try and disable and enable various add-ons until you find the culprit.

Actually, my mistake. It's actually the McAfee Site Advisor Add-On that was causing it for me.

@david51, thanks for fixing my issue. I couldn't figure out what was going on but as soon as I disabled SA, all was well. Many thanks!

Indeed the culprit was McAfee SiteAdviser, the cure is for Windows 32-bit: https://sadownload.mcafee.com/products/SA/IE/upgrade/3.3.1/32/saUpgrade32.exe for Windows 64-bit: https://sadownload.mcafee.com/products/SA/IE/upgrade/3.3.1/64/saUpgrade64.exe

It was WPI detector that needed to be disabled for me. Seems like you need to experiment with the add ons to find the culprit.
