    With Internet Explorer 9, the forum is consistently putting the urls for ads in the "Back" button list, meaning that it takes me 3 or 4 clicks on the Back button to go back one page. I've attached an image with what the list looks like.

    That's because the forum displays the ads as their own pages that you click through. You can pay for a "membership" which disables the ads, or use an ad blocker.

    Still, 'frames' shouldn't appear in the history.

    Yeah, it doesn't happen on either Firefox or Chrome, and I don't think it's always been like this either -- I've had my machine for over a year and just noticed it recently.

    Yes, this only started happening very recently for me. If this is normal SOP, why is it only now starting to happen? It sounds like either a problem with latest upgrade of IE, or a problem with TCF.

    I used to use the back button all the time, primarily to back out of a thread back to the User CP. This latest new behavior is kind of inconvenient.

    It's happening with IE8 as well as on my Android phone's browser, which I guess is a Chrome derivative. Very irritating.

    It's worse than annoying. Sometimes I get "Error not found" for the ads - which wouldn't be all that bad actually except that tends to make loading the page you want to see take a long time as the ads error out. Sometimes I have to close the browser and start again.

    And yes, this is recent. I didn't have this problem a few months ago. And this is the only site where I've seen it happen.

    Hey, today it's not doing this anymore. The back button now works correctly. :up: I hope it stays like this.
