After the update of firefox 23, whenever I click back button doesn't reload the page.

Posted

Before the update everything was working fine, but yesterday after the update I noticed that whenever I open a page and after that I hit back button, it doesn't reload the page like before. It's annoying, because I use forum and sometimes is confusing when I open a thread and after that it still says that "new thing", the only way to remove it is to reload the page from the refresh button.

Hi kram160, no solution was found in this thread. I haven't searched for other nytimes threads.

Meanwhile, I think the workaround would be to right-click the Back button and use the list to back-navigate, or use the in-page navigation links to return to the home page or section where you were before. That's all that comes to mind at the moment.

jscher2000: Thanks for the response. So is this a Firefox thing? Are they aware of it?

Hi kram160, as you scroll down on some of these sites, a script in the page pushes new addresses into the browser history. Why isn't it showing up in all browsers?? Are other browsers blocking it and should Firefox block it?? I have more questions than answers.

Unless this is something pages should not be allowed to do, then I don't think anyone will work on changing it in Firefox, and it would be left to add-on developers to find a way to block it.

But that's just an opinion of a support volunteer and for all I know this might be under discussion somewhere.
