Can't go back Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Not sure if this is OmniWeb-related, but it seems to be more of a problem in the 5.5 sneakypeeks than the 5.1 series. The problem is that on some websites, the back button becomes non-functional. To see what I mean, visit this link:

Then click the Back button. Nothing happens! No matter how many times I hit that button, I remain trapped in the page forever!

The above site isn't the only one; I've encountered many with this same behavior. Does anyone know why this happens? What could the website be doing that would prevent me from going back?
Known issue - read the release notes.

Using ad-blocking seems to make this a problem on some pages. You can usually get around the problem by allowing ads (yuck!) or using the pull-down arrow menu on the back button. I've run into this on eBay as well as when I first encountered it at There are bug reports in on this, and it's mentioned in the release notes.
