When checking my gmail and hotmail accounts, the back button fails to return to my previous page. For example, I can click the little down arrow along the right-side of the navigation button and see that Google is let's say five (three, ten, one, seven it doesn't matter) pages down the history list but I cannot get there with the back button in any way, shape or form. I can click all day long and I remain at the same page.
This is a common problem that has been around for awhile (search it yourself) and has not been addressed in any fashion.
1. No, clearing the cache does nothing.
2. No, I have no add-ons or extensions.
3. No, this behavior is not present in Internet Explorer 8 or 9.
4. Yes, I'm running the latest version - 3.6.13.
I would really like to use Firefox but with all the bugs, and this one especially, I'm forced to use IE. A significant reason for using a particular browser is ease of use. You folks may have a more secure browser than IE but at least IE works and doesn't feel like I'm driving over a pothole ridden road.
And nice attempt to discourage forum participation - seriously, can you make it any more cumbersome to post comments?
