Browser 'Back' button needs 15 hits before executing (Windows 7, 64-bit)

post #1 of 165
Thread Starter 
All the (limited) stuff I use seems to be accessible and working - thanks.

However, when I use the 'back' button on the browser (IE9, Windows 7, 64-bit), it takes literally 15 clicks before it executes. Usually when repeated clicks are necessary on 'back' it is because an ad or something that is loaded counts as a new page. Up to now, on other sites, it has taken at most 3 hits, but 15 is excessive. can anything be done about this?

Also. as I am writing this post, the cursor doesn't move when the forward and back arrow keys are pressed - the insertion point moves correctly, but the cursor doesn't move.

Thanks

That seems to happen when certain ad strings clash with IE, specifically  We're looking into it.

Just not getting enough of these https://googleleads.g.doubleclick.net/page. Please add a couple more thousand. It was bad enough on the old layout but this is a joke.

This is crippling.

(posted this elsewhere, but since there are multiple threads I am posting it here as well)

We just disabled a couple of ad networks that could potentially cause this issue - please clear cache, log out and back in again (probably not necessary but just in case).  Let me know if it's still happening.

No change here.

Could you possibly post a screenshot like the above, uncropped so that it is showing the ads that are displaying when this issue is happening?  We're not having any luck getting this issue to reproduce on our end so it's hard to narrow down.  Thanks in advance.

Same problem using IE10 in Win8RP.

There's 12 ads for featured sponsors, one ad at the bottom of the page, one above the sponsors, and a wide banner ad above that. That's 15 ads total, the same amount of clicks necessary to go back one page.

Adblock does wonders.

So, I should cheat the forum out of their chance at ad revenue, as you're obviously doing? Maybe I should also torrent some pirated movies and music. I dunno, maybe shoplifting next? Boost a car?

I guess they were right when they said Huddler would bring in newbies with no actual interest in the forum.

I think this is a IE9 issue. If i'm on a comp that isn't IE9 this doesn't happen, but what a pain it is.
post #13 of 165
I have actually been using this site for a very long time, just because I just now made an account and decided to post does not mean anything. I also use adblock because I will never use any of those ads. I am sorry I hurt your feelings about that, but to compare this to boosting a car or shoplifting and even pirating is kind of nonsense.

Also to attack someone for being new (join date wise) shows what type of person you are. I guess you have never been new, even though I have been using this site longer than you have been a member of it? I am sorry I do not join every group I see to feel like I am part of something, but I wish you the best with your ad complaining and hope you get what you want out of it.

For me I will continue to use adblock, I would rather pay to join a site than look at information I would rather not see.

1. stop using IE,
2. In spite of the above comment, it isn't Idiot Exploiter (strange as it seems).
3. It isn't Win7 (I still use XP)

I use Opera (for the past 9 years exclusively) and the problem is there. If you do a double click (M$ default style) it should return to where you were, but I see exceptions where it returns you back a few screens, possibly to where you started on that specific tab.

Try it and report back. If the clicks are too close together, or too far apart it doesn't work.

My feelings were not hurt.

My nonsense post was in response to your ignorant and nonsensical post, which was unhelpful to say the least, especially since the issue was already being handled by the support crew. Your ignorance continues, as this is not about the ads, but about the functionality of the back button. I too used this site for years before joining, and though I was once a new member, my 5th post ever was not lame smart-ass remarks in the middle of someone's support session.

Welcome to the forum. Cheers.

i have to back click 22 times to get back to where i was. Or look at the list of googleads, pick the last one, then bring up the next list to find my place. It's so annoying.

I have this issue on another site, but pressing the back button twice works, but there are only two googleads there. Here there are way to many.

Okay thank you, I'll go over this with the Ad team and see if we can figure this out.  If I need more info, I'll come back and ask.

Thanks for working with me on this, I appreciate it smile.gif

Some of us are on machines which we do not have admin rights to and therefore cannot just jump onto the bandwagon of another browser for this site's bugs.

What version of Opera?  We don't fully test on Opera, but I've only had reports of this on IE up until now.

post #20 of 165
I have to click back button so many times I end up being sent to the siste I visited before going to AVS. Frustrating.
post #21 of 165
Using the same setup as the OP (IE 9, Win 7, 64bit), normally I don't experience any problems when selecting the Browser Back button, however, on occasion it will hang up and then requires exactly 3 clicks to return to the previous page. This happens regardless of whether I have the "Turn off advertising" feature selected or not.

I use Alt+left-arrow in FF and IE. right-arrow to go fwd... if there is a fwd object (page or jump linked sections within a page).
post #23 of 165
I found one annoying problem with the new site and I think it is related to ads. I am using Windows 7 64 bit with IE9. I am also using Norton Internet Security 2012. If I am reading a thread and I try to back out using the back button on my mouse nothing happens. If I right click the back arrow on the browser it shows one of two things.

1: http://static.ak.facebook.com/connect/xd.arbiter.php?version7 then followed by
https://s-static.ak.facebook.com/connect/xd.arbiter.php?version7
If I type this in my address bar it gives me a HTTP 403 Forbidden Error
I found an explaination of this problem:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10590850/how-to-avoid-links-to-http-static-ak-facebook-com-connect-xd-arbiter-php-hangi

2: httpgoogleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/drt/s?v=20120211
I guess this has to do with the ads on the main page of the forum:
http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/static.py?hl=en&gl=US&client=ca-pub-4730054231376678&ts=1631343&page=ts.cs&adU=www.Fab.com&rd=3&contact=abg_afc&url=http:%2F%2Fwww.avsforum.com%2F&adT=ImageAd

Every time you click on a thread and read it then back up to the sub forum you are in you have to click dozens of times or right click the back arrow and select the link at the bottom of the drop down page to get back. This is very annoying and I hope you can fix this or stop this from happening.

Hi, this was double posted into another thread on the same issue - not necessary for me to see it.

 

We messed with this a bit yesterday (the back button thing, not facebook connect) and found AN issue, although I don't know if it is THE issue at hand.  In short, one specific ad network was causing problems in IE when it switched.  We fixed that.  We can't seem to get this exact problem to reproduce, so run a cache clear and log out, then let me know if you're still having this issue.  Sorry to sound like a broken record in this regard, but this is very hard to fix if we can't get it to happen, and it only seems to happen to some people, not universally to anyone running IE.  =/

post #25 of 165
For the record, it happened to me.. until I turned off ads. It stopped when I turned the ads off.

I just did what you recomended but it still happens. I always empty my cookies, browsing history, and files everyday. Also I shutdown my computer everyday. I just noticed when I went to check this post I right clicked the back arrow and the links were not there. I clicked back to the Platform Launch Help and Discusions section and then right clicked the back arrow and I had about six facebook links. I clicked the forward arrow to go back to this thread and When I right clicked the back arrow the links were gone. When I clicked the back button on my mouse and right clicked the back button again there was about 12 facebook links. I have been having this problem since the launch of the new forum.
I am seeing this on some other websites. My local newspapers site will fill my internet cache when you click on certain articles that have a certain ad. In this case I have to close my browser and restart it again and then empty my internet cache. I appreciate that you are taking the time to figure this out
.
I have this problem on both of my PCs. Both PCs are windows 7 64 bit using IE9 64 bit and both have Norton Internet Security 2012. One PC is a HP and the other is one that I built.
Hopefully Facebook will go the route of MySpace and disappear soon.
post #27 of 165
I guess I haven't had this issue with WIN7 64bit because I turned the ads off. I have no idea if that could have been done with the old format but when I saw the option to turn the ads of with the new format I enabled it.

Still experiencing same issue as before as well.

How do you turn the ads off as there is nothing in IE9 that I can see that does this?
