The back button is disabled even though I clearly visted the link through Google

When I search for something in Google, and find a particular link interesting, I view it. But when I want to go back to my search list, it seems like the back button is disabled and it won't allow me to go back. This is obviously painful, if I am searching for a variety of things. The back button works perfectly sometimes but others it just doesn't. Can anyone explain this odd behavior?

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons (McAfee SiteAdvisor) is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
