I know firefox is probably a better browser, but I am still so used to internet explorer I cant change. Anyways, when Im browsing and I want to go back, I have to click the "back" button like 3 times before it actually goes back. Does anybody have any idea what is going on, and how to fix it? Thanks.

Some sites are designed in such a way that when you hit the "Back" button, you just get redirected to the same page that you're trying to leave (regardless of what browser you're using). I'm not a web programmer, so I don't know the mechanics of it, but I do find it pretty irritating myself.

It is hit and miss, some sites it will not go back and then some it will. even here at Daniweb I have to hit back 3 times. But mostly all of the sites are this way.

Does it go back by one page or three pages ??

It only goes back one page after I click it three or four times.
