I don't understand something. When i'm on this site, and want to "go back" after looking at a thread, or something, I always have to click the "Back Button" exactly 3 times to get it to work. It doesn't happen on any other site.

If I'm looking at the New Posts Since Last Visit list, the quickest thing is to go up and click on "View New Posts", and that always works the first time. But the "Back" doesn't???????

Any explanations out there?

It is neither you NOR the Site. It is your BROWSER. I bet you are using Internet Explorer. Switch over to Mozilla's Firefox and it will work much better.

I use IE and rather than change the settings on my browser, I just right-mouse click to open the topic/link in a new tab/window. Once I'm done reading I just close that browser tab/window and continue with the next topic heading. Problem solved.

I use four different computers, with different browsers and operating systems. I NEVER use the back button on any of them while on FiberglassRV. I follow the bread crumbs. This image shows going from Keith's topic back to the main General Chat forum where his topic resides. Try it, you'll like it! BTW: following the bread crumbs works on all the major fiberglass sites.

Hi: Keith Williams...Like Hansel& Gretel...you spread "Bread Crumbs" along the path so you can find your way back.

Look at the image Keith, then check out the links at the top portion of your window... bread crumbs. The hand cursor shows the link turning gold... that shows it's active.

This is the bread crumb explanation from Wikipedia:

I find that if I'm at the bottom of a page, it is sometimes easier to use the little drop down box on the bottom right. Rather than scrolling up to the top.

It is automatically set to the forum section you are reading and clicking on the 'Go' brings you back. That makes me think it is an alternate breadcrumb link.

If I want to change forums, I'll use the down arrow in the box to select the forum I want.

I'm not too good at screen shots, maybe Donna will post some.

I have the same problem on this site, and this site only. To me it's much easier to hit the back button than scroll back up or down to the end of a thread. I've become used to it on this site and just click the back button twice when going back to the list of posts. I'm not a real fan of IE or firefox for that matter. They both have their little idiosyncrisies. I just don't understand how if it's an IE problem, why it doesn't happen on other sites. I probably visit 50-75 sites on any given day and fiberglass forum is the only one which doesn't recognize the back button on the first click.

Started happening to me, too. I had no problem using the back button for a year on this site, and recently, l have to hit it multiple times, or just click on forum again and start all over. I'll try some of the other ideas.

To quickly get back to the top of a page, click the "Top" button in any post.
