Clicking "Back" after doing a search on WebmasterWorld

I have to keep repeating my search

I use the search feature here quite often and I'm not sure why this always happens, but after I do a search I get a list of topics that contain the keywords I used to search on, say I go to the first result and don't find what I'm looking, I click the back button and always get the following message

Warning: Page has Expired The page you requested was created using information you submitted in a form. This page is no longer available. As a security precaution, Internet Explorer does not automatically resubmit your information for you.

To resubmit your information and view this Web page, click the Refresh button.

This is killing me b/c I need to hit refresh everytime and re-enter my search. Is there a way around this?

Roscoe, I've never gotten it. Is it happening with IE? Which browser?

It happens in IE 6.0 too, on XP Pro. It's been a thorn in my side for quite some time.

roscoepico,

While the powers that be arrange for the Senate Hearings on this issue, here's a work-around...
Instead of clicking on the text link in the SERP, click on the little "cascaded windows" graphic
just to the left - That opens the page in a new window, and you don't need "Back" - just close the
window if you don't like it, and click on the next one.

P.S. Y'all be careful with IE6... There are some "Uninstall" issues with it if you ever have to
reload Windows+IE5.x from your CD. Before installing it, I'd recommend search the M$ knowledge base
for "Uninstall IE6" or similar. Not a big problem, but you do have to fire up RegEdit to fix it.

Sounds like it might be a problem with your browser cache settings... check your Preferences for IE.
