I just noticed this today. I'm using Firefox 3.6 on Linux. From my home page, I click on my EpicSki link. Once it's done loading, I click the browser's back button in order to go back to my home page. It doesn't work until I hit the back button a total of nine times. This is also reflected in the browser's little down-triangle menu. I'm actually seeing this for all pages, including this one: New Thread in The Bug Report appears nine times in the menu as I'm typing this.
Have to Click Back Button Nine Times
this is what I'm experiencing.

We've been here before. For some reason, some browsers or connections allow "sponsors" (ads really) to tag along with the connection. They don't necessarily pop up. But they register. So when you hit "Back", the browser goes to this address - but then doesn't show it. I'm betting that if you look at the "history" list, you'll see 9 (or however many) ad addresses b/w the first page and the one you are on.
I'm not enough of a computer geek to know how to fix this problem....but some of you are. When I experienced it, I simply hit the history list button and chose the page I wanted, rather than hitting the "back" button. Perhaps it's a firewall or security setting adjustment..
