Browser Window BACK on click
javascript doesn't work in IE

 7:30 pm on Jan 9, 2003 (gmt 0)


The other thread about using javascript to open a full-screen window reminded me about the following issue that I had before and never resolved.


[A HREF="javascript:window.back();"]Return to the last page you were on[/A]

works in a NetNav window but not in an MS IE window. Can anyone please tell me how it can be made to work in both?

Thank you.

can't you also do just history.back();

I'm trying to clean stuff up for the New Year and have been using javascript:history.back()

is this also incorrect? Can you explain the difference? I'm a total dummy about js?
