Mozilla forgets previous sites when I press back button

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Mozilla occasionally forgets the last page that I was on when browsing or get it in the wrong order, so when I press the back button it either does nothing (and I have to navigate to the previous page from scratch) or it jumps back 2 pages and in some cases is unable to find the one in the middle (as if I never visited it). It does this every time it sends me forward to the wrong page (sending me to a different link to the one I clicked).

I’m currently using Mozilla 3.6.15 (though I doubt the version has anything to do with it as it didn’t do this on my other PC with the same version).
The difference now is that I’m using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and before I was using XP SP3 on a different machine.
I cannot find any similar problem elsewhere online and although I’ll try reinstalling, I have little hope as I’ve used mozilla for several years and never had a problem like this.

I don't mean to sound rude or anything, but I legitimately believe you are getting windows/tabs mixed up? Considering you moved from XP to Windows 7, there is a big change in the task bar. One icon will hold multiple windows of firefox, so you could be opening up multiple and just not realizing it?
If it isn't user error, try reinstalling. I recommend checking out the beta, because it is awesome =D.

Some web sites deliberately screw with your Back and Forward buttons.
