  1. I have been browsing the forums for a while today, and it seems that every time I look at a thread, then I hit back to look at another one, it doensn't go. I have to use the pulldown menu at the bottom to return to whatever forum I was in.

    Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem or not????:confused:

    I was just comming to site comments to post on that. lol
    Same problem, once I have read a post in order to go back I have to hit it 5 times. The first time it ungrey's that forward box but it doesn't go back still, I have to hit it 4 more times before I can actually go back to the previous page.
    I'm using IE 6.0.2600.000 in Windows XP (if the 2600 didn't already tell you).

    my identiti...

    if i don't choose "use cookies" and let vb save my username and password, i wouldn't be directed back to the thread after i've posted. instead, i'll be directed to the useless user cp page. :dead:
    and if i don't "use cookies", i'll have to enter my name and password everytime i post. :dead:
    and i'm using a public pc... just think if someone comes in to the forums and change my password... :eek:
    missed the old login page.

    I think it has to do w/ Java Script, pop-ups & that Soyo ad.

    I think you might be on to something there. I did notice once before some people had problems with not being redirected after posting. That problem was because the ads did not load up. But I don't think thats happening 100% of the time when I can't get back, so that might be JavaScript problem?

    btw, I click the ads all the time and that Soyo ad seems to be the only one that doesn't go through ads.ad-flow.com before the page, and that Soyo ad takes the longest to load up when you click it.

    Rh click on that ad, un-tic "play" page will load faster.
    (p.s.) ad money is a good thing.

    hit the back button four times quickly

    If you hit the back button four times quickly, it seems to work.

    Also try: IE, click on View and un-check Status Bar.
