Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040527 Firefox/0.8.0+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040527 Firefox/0.8.0+

Cause: unknown.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a website using a vBulletin forum.
Here are two URLs you can use:
http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?s=d1b86abdeee737bba2a06991bcdfa0b1&f=1
or
http://forums.relicnews.com/forumdisplay.php?f=64
2. Scroll part way down the page.
3. Go to one of the links.
4. Click on the "back" button.

Actual Results:  
The page scroll position is at the top of the page.

Expected Results:  
The page should scroll to the last position you were at on that page.

I saved one of the pages to my computer (from both forums).  However, after
saving the files to my computer the issue no longer appeared.

Someone needs to figure out what this site is doing that breaks session history...

Viewing the page info for both vBulletin forums reveals the following:
Source: Memory Cache
Viewing the page info for other sites on the internet reveals the following:
Source: Disk Cache

Based on this info, I found another page that had Source: Memory Cache here:
http://www.tvguide.com/listings/

This page demonstrated the same problem.
It's possible that this is a duplicate of Bug 215405 (thanks for the links
R.K.Aa) since the URL listed there also displays Source: Memory Cache.
Yeah, vbulletin does indeed send cache-control: no-store.
