    When I go to a thread & post something, then hit the back button, it takes me back to the page I was on, but it takes me to the bottom of the page. It used to take me back to the thread I just commented on. Anybody else having this problem. I'm using Chrome on a desktop running Windows 10.

    Al - This is a back button test.

    Back button just took me back to the home page. Safari.
     
  4. Well, here's a back button test from my Galaxy S9 running Chrome.
     
  5. I get taken to where I was at on the previous page, not exactly the bottom of it. This seems to be standard for my chrome experience, but I dont remember when it became standard.

    I reckon the web folks want us to move on after commenting to another topic and not go back to admire our post. So I just go to the top and click the same category again or forum home page to see what else might be new.

    Al, I had that happen a couple times, but after a few more hits, it went where it should have gone.
    Working fine now.
    Mac--Safari--"Mojave".

    I have to hit refresh screen to see my reply after I hit the back button. Chrome user.
