Back button (and sometimes Forward button as well) greys out or disappears completely after clicking on a link (and arriving at the resulting page.) This example is from within gmail (NOTE THAT BOTH ARE GREYED OUT) 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log into gmail an email on "view"
4. See email contents but BACK & FORWARD BUTTONS GREYED OUT
5. another example is THIS VERY WEBSITE:
1A. In gmail, clicked on your "change password" link.
2A. Arrived at cahnge pw page, changed password.
3A. Logged in to your site
4A. Clicked on "Report a bug"
5.  Back button greyed out
(I did not use your URL as an example because I thought it micht cancel or corrupt contents of this report)
Actual Results:  
Arrive at destination page, find "back" button greyed out or missing.

Expected Results:  
Take me to linked page with "Back" button intact and usable.

this behavior is NOT exclusive to gmail, although it does always happen there in the circumstances described (following two links to see a given email; the first (google knows why) merely takes you to a thread page, the 2nd takes you to the email itself.
