Let me first say I'm dumber than a fence post when it comes to computer stuff. I WISH I had the intelligence of a box of rocks when it comes to these things!
That said, lately, on some sites (but not all), when I click "back" I get a little bubble that says "go back one page or right click or pull down to show history." So I actually have to click "back" twice (depending on the site) to go back even though I've never had that issue before and it seems to me that if I've already clicked "back" it's 'cause I actually want to go back and not have to sometimes click twice. And worse, sometimes when I do click twice, I end up several pages away from where either I was or intended to go.
No idea if this helps or makes it worse for you, and again, I'm a complete idiot, but you might look and see if you're getting those directions. Which are stupider than I am and much more aggravating.
This is one site (and an awesome site it is!) that I don't have the back trouble with.
If I had to guess, and since I don't know, I'm sort of stuck with guessing-I'm thinking it's some kind of "new and improved" thing where somebody thought having more options was "better" somehow. That when you hit back what you really meant was, "please give me more options since I didn't really mean back." You know, like "new and improved" ice cream which only means that the carton is smaller.
thanks so much for all your replies, i sure appreciate the help. I googled it, have gone to the help button on my computer. Unplugged it from the wall. I think I'll pray for guidance.
And, i may have to put up with eyerolls and "every day its something" ,and ask the dh. I was wondering if other people are having the same probs,if it was a sb.com thing. From what you all are saying, it sounds like its not a sb.com thing.
Usually for me it has to do with how many ads are on the page and how often they refresh - sometimes if you click the down arrow next to your back button (or hold the back button down if you're on Firefox), you'll see that all of the ads have created a "page" that you have to click back through. Usually easier at that point to just scroll down the list and find the REAL page you want to go back to.
ok i put the mouse on the back arrow, hold, and some options drop down. One of them is says "back to scraphouses place at sb.com." I click on that option and im to where i want to be. This problem started yesterday .
I use Google Chrome instead of internet explorer. I never have issues with it. Ever.
My friend calls me all the time with issues on hers and every time I ask her if she clicked the blue E or the google chrome button. She always forgets to use Chrome but it always seems to fix any issues she has.
