Can I disable the resubmit when I hit the back button

After submitting a form (say a search form) and then clicking on a link on the results ("action") page I wish to go back to the form page and change the form criteria. However, when I hit the back button Firefox always wants to re-post the form data before I can go back any further in the history. Very clunky. Is there a way to prevent this re-post and just have it open the cached page?

Google Chrome does this nicely by just displaying a page in lieu of the form's "action" page that gives you the option to re-submit or you can simply click back to go back to the form page. I don't think Firefox should force you to resubmit a form if you are just trying to navigate backwards through your history.

I used to get around this by using the split back button to choose the form page directly, but the FF4/FF5 default navigation buttons don't have this any longer (that I can find anyway).

Is there an about:config setting that will prevent this forced re-submit?

Use one of these methods to open the tab history list and bypass the page with that gives the alert:

  • Right click on the Back or Forward button
  • Hold down the left mouse button on the enabled Back or Forward button until the list opens

Thanks. I was unaware of the right-click on the forward/backward buttons. That'll do.
