From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9) Gecko/20010505 BuildID: 2001050515 I am viewing articles on LinuxToday. When you follow a link to a post to an article, the Name of the Document does not change. After using ALT+< several times to view diffent Posts I am noticing that the Back button stops functioning. I have to open the History list and go to the first page that does not have the same title for it to start functioning again. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open up linuxtoday.com 2. Enter a doc that has several posts 3. View a post and press ALT+< after post loads 4. Repeat following different post links each time. This should produce the problem. Actual Results: The Back button does not turn disabled, but you still cannot go back anymore. It is like the browser gets confused on what it should display before this doc was entered Expected Results: The Back button should return to the linuxtoday main list, which was the previous document before looking at this one and its posts.

Works for me on Win98 build 2001053004. Tried about 20 links and the back button continued to work.
marking WFM based on previous comment so that this falls in QA's radar.

It still happens on occasion for me, but as stated it happens infrequently. I haven't been able to get the exact combination for causing this. It appears to be linked with useing ALT+<-, but I am not sure.
