"back" broken? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

No. I thought that's what it was, but cookies didn't have much to do with it.

1. Go to
2. In the site prefs, select to block images/content From blocked URLs
3. Click on links to surf within the site (eg, top stories.)

After traveling to a few pages, you should see a list of duplicate pages in the history.
Yeah, I too notice the same problem with the back button not working properly. Actually in my experience it doesn't work most of the time. For example I just noticed it on Yahoo!'s tv listing site:

Also there seems to be an issue with pages that either don't specify a title (in which case OW should just use the URL) or non-HTML documents (again, URL should be used) and OW decides to give the window a title of "OmniWeb"

I am using the latest, 5.5 sp10, BTW, on a Quad G5 on an NFS network account ( ~ is in /Network/Users)

I see this also with many, many different pages. FWIW, i just experienced it with Yahoo!'s new home page, after emulating FF1.5.

Please don't report the title problem in a thread about the back button--they are not related and you want us to fix both problems, right?

Thanks for figuring out what causes this bug! It was making OW 5.5 almost unbearable for daily use. I've temporarily unchecked this setting until this bug is fixed.

FWIW, this is still broken in SP11. But you probably already knew that.
I think it's a safe bet that if they didn't put it in the release notes as "fixed" it hasn't been fixed.
Ah! I see this is actually a known problem. I should have dug further. It is still happening, I'm sorry to say.
Indeed, this behavior seems to have regressed in SP12 for some of the sites I visit. is a particularly bad one under SP12; just click a link to any story on their site with "blocked urls" ad blocking enabled, and watch the history entries pile up.

If other folks can't replicate this behavior let me know and I'll figure out which ad-blocking regexp is filtering the post-gazette's ads.

You will all be happy to hear that I tracked this one down today and fixed it for the next release (I hope).
