Evening. I don’t seem to be able to return to a previous page on this site. IE if I’m browsing the projects pages and I want to return to the previous page (usually a right mouse click) nothing happens. I have this problem only on this site. Thank you.

I have noticed this too in Firefox.

What I found out is the page is being loaded 5 to 6 times. If you hold the Back button or check the page histories, you will see this.

It is like you pressed the link 5 to 6 times in a row.

Take care,

Joao Araujo

Thank you Joao. Any idea how to prevent this? Never used to do it.

I had the same problem. It’s all the ads, which I assume are loaded as separate pages. So when you press the “back” button, all it is doing is resetting the ad, rather than returning to the previous webpage.

The easiest way to fix this is to use an adblocking plugin in your browser.

I have the same problem and I use FireFox.
You can right click on the back arrow and a drop down list will show you where “back” will take you.
Notice about the top 7 or 8 destinations are the same place where you are.
Click on the next one down that is different. That will be where “back” should go.
This has happened before. Usually gets fixed in a day or two.

Same problem here. The abundance of adds, and the problems that they are causing, is now starting to make this site quite frustrating instead of the enjoyable site that it always has been.

Huge Firefox fan, but I notice this same phenomenon doesn’t happen on my work computer which has Chrome. I don’t know if that is a factor of Chrome, or something the company network does. I still see the ads in the side panel and at the top.

It has been a problem for me for some time. I have started opening links on new tab. When you x out of the tab you go right back to where you were or to another tab.

I open each forum or topic in a new tab.
Easier to keep track of where your’re at anyway….

Checking on this again. I have not been able to replicate the issue, so I am going to see what our techs have to say.

Cricket, it doesn’t happen with all versions of Firefox, it also doesn’t happen if you have an ad blocking add-on installed.
I have a test computer that I run simulation on to replicate problems. It has no ad-block, no malware blocker and no AV. It is surprising how many pieces of junk get loaded in one of these windows.

That computer hasn’t had a Firefox update sinve V.29. We are now at V.36. if everything is current.

Okay, I tested this again.

In Chrome (my default browser) I found no issues.

In Internet Explorer (fully updated) I found no issues.

In Firefox (fully updated) I was also unable to use the back button after viewing multiple images within a project.

I will add this information to the bug report.
