My Back button has quit working on LJ’s. I use IE9 and it works fine on other sites, but has quit working on LJ’s. I can back away from the opening screen, but if I go deeper, the Back button doesn’t work and I have to exit and reopen to go somewhere else. Rebooting didn’t help.

Same thing here…It started last night….like Sawkerf said you can go to the main page, and look at a forum topic, but when you try to back out to go to another page, it doesn’t work….I have to hit the main LJs at the top of the page…..it’s definitely in the LJs website…...

I just figured out that if you keep punching the back button enough, it will go back…I thought my puter was going haywire….punch, punch, punch…....your’s might work, too…..

I din’t count the clicks, but it takes quite a few for it to work…..

EDIT: YEP…..8 seems to be the “magic number”....:)

On IE8 if you “left click” the back button you see where your destination choices are in a “drop down” list.
The first 7 choices are “forward information” or something like that. You can click the 8th choice and you go back.

AHA!!! I think that Crank49 found the problem. When I right click the Back button, I see a list with “Current Page” followed by seven “Share This” entries. The last choice is the previous page.

I think that the order of that list needs to be reversed so the top choice is the previous page.

Edited To Add
Just discovered that the more I go back and forth between pages, the longer the “Share This” list gets. Since I don’t use any of the social media sites, this is truely aggravating.

The “Share This” entries seem to appear in multiples of four which corresponds to the number of social media sites that show up on each new topic. I think that every time you go to another thread, the four “Share This” entries get added to the list so the more times you jump around the longer the list gets.

Hopefully, they can fix this soon. – lol

I found that if you first hit F5 (refresh) on your keyboard and then the back button it will work.
