Ever since the upgrade to Firefox 76.0 on Windows 10 Pro ... sometimes I click on a link ... then click on the back button ... I am returned to the top of the page instead of the location from which I exited the original page

I have seen this reported several times ... with the workaround of Open Link in New Tab (which I have had to use for YouTube for several years) ... but now all pages (including my own) ... exhibit this problem

I have started Firefox in safe mode as well as with all plugins disabled ... and the results are the same

The page in question is my BOOKMARKS.html from this or any other profile ... if that helps

Say when I click on a link from ABCnews.go.com, then use the back arrow to return to the news page, it takes me back to the top of the page instead of where I was on the page. At first the correct location will flash on the screen, then jump back and stop at the top of the page. I then have to scroll back down to find where I was on the page. I used Chrome before this and did not have that problem.

Why does using the 'back' button sometimes cause a page reload, but other times does NOT cause a page reload in the same app?

I've noticed this on various sites, but I'll use YouTube as an example. I'm sitting on my YouTube 'home' page and I see a set of 'suggestions'. I click on one of the suggested vids and watch it. Afterward, I hit the 'back' button in the browser (there is not an embedded back button in the app). Sometimes hitting the 'back' button takes me back to the same YouTube page with my suggested videos and I can watch another. Other times, hitting the 'back' button causes a new page to load and I now have a new set of suggested videos displayed. This behavior is not consistent - sometime the page load occurs, other times the same page appears. I cannot detect a pattern to this. What's annoying about this is that there may have been more than one thing I wanted to view on the initial 'suggested videos' section of the original page displayed. However, after watching one of the vids and hitting the 'back' button, if a new page loads, I now no longer have access to those other suggested vids I wanted to watch. As I noted earlier, I've seen this behavior in other apps too. I don't know if this is the right place to ask about this, or if it's a browser thing at all, I'm just trying to understand what's causing this behavior and figure out if there's anyway for me to mitigate it.

I've looked through a few previous posts but there are no answers. I got off of Chrome today and each time I do I realize why I go back to Chrome. This back button will not go back after many mashes unless I reload the page a time or two which is annoying. I don't want to have any dealings with google but this would do it.

I've read that I need a fresh reinstall. I just downloaded the browser once again. How has something this simple not been fixed after all of this time?

I guess I'll ask once more. How do I correct this? Please no tech jargon. Simple steps. I appreciate it.

When I'm using facebook chat and want to correct something that I wrote wrong and press backspace, it returns to previous page or blank tab if I open new tab and load facebook only. I tried to disable backspace in about:config with 2 value but then it disable backspace completely. Any Idea is that a bug or something ?

In most instances I can click on the solid black return arrow. However in an increasing number of instances the return arrow is gray and clicking on it does not result in a return to previous page. This is a problem when I am reviewing my emails. In order to return to the previous page, I have to cancel the operation and return to my home page, then go to my email page. This is a nuisance. I am using 10.6.8 operating system.

Hello,

I work in Tech Support, for a company called Xpres in the UK. On our Tech Support 'site, when typing, the backspace button doesn't work 99% of the time. This only ever happens in Firefox - all other browsers work without issue.

It is as though the cursor is disappearing during typing, even though text is still displayed when typing.

The issue is in an application called 'OSTicket' - nothing else, so i shall contact them also.

If you could help in any way, that would be appreciated.

Many thanks.
