I hit the back button multiple times, nothing happens. I had to get to the home page and start over again after reading a thread.
Only happens with this site. Works fine with any other sites.
IE 8, Windows 7
I've had this problem before. I'm not a computer genius, but I've found evidence that cookies or pop-ups are riding along. They don't show cuz my firewall/antivirus, but their address gets recorded. Look at the history button/arrow and you might find you have a lot of addresses listed b/w the page you're looking at and your desired "back" address. So when I hit "back", the machine goes back to the ad site.
Someone got better description/advice on this?
tch is right!
I've got 9, I mean 9! google ads on my history!!!
(9 ads for each page. No wonder the site is typically loading twice or three times slower than any other sites)
All that back button does is to reload the ad!!!
Oh! Ha, it's working now. I never saw an announcement that it was supposed to be fixed, but my downgrade to 5-whatever kept having me showered with requests to upgrade and in the middle of all that, there was suddenly some problem with Symantec flagging Facebook as a fraudulent site and in the middle of trying to analyze THAT problem, I upgraded back to FF 7. (Turned out it was a Symantec problem, but..)
Anyway, glad to see the problem with FF is fixed.
