Yesterday I noticed that when I viewed a thread and then pressed the back arrow it does nothing.  If I click the back arrow the second time it works and takes me back to discussion.

Thinking it might by my computer I shut it down last night.  But same problem occurs today.  Not every time, but say 90% of the time.

I can see the page icon blink on the first click and on the second click it does the "loading" message.

Has anyone else noticed this?

It has been happening to me on multiple machines. I generally use SeaMonkey as my browser. I often will go up to the back button (or alt-left arrow that does the same thing) and when I just scan over the button I get a little JavaScript type notice that does not work. If I wait until it shows "Go Back One Page" it works most of the time. It is really annoying. I assume it is some recent change to the forums. I also tested it out in Firefox and IE. The same problem happened in Firefox, but not IE. I am surprised that a script would have been written that was IE specific. That is not a good practice, particularly for a company that is at odds with MicroSoft.

Apparently this aspect depends on the specific browser, but that suggests that the code has used some non-standard script for going back that is not recognized by all browsers. If Jive is as great as it is supposed to be, then such hickups should not exist and it should work in ALL browsers, not just IE and Safari.

Have just tried several times in Safari and Explorer under Win 7. Every time I went back with just one click.

I just tried it, and it worked.

Normally, I use the Up to button to get back to the same place in the forum, or the Bookmark to get an updated view from the start.

On Chrome, on Friday, April 13 @ 4:00PM PST, the Back Arrow works, albeit slowly. It is like it takes a second, or two, to think about what it should do, and then the little circular arrow, spinning thingie starts and takes me back.

It's the same; clicking the browser's Back button, or the keyboard's Back key - in 99% it must be clicked / pressed twice.

Thanks to those that checked.  Odd that only a few have this problem.

Been almost a week now and still have same problem.

Very annoying to have to click the back arrow twice after reading post to go back to discussion.

If I remember I scroll down to Discussion to get back, but usually don't remember.

Once is 50 tries it goes back on first click.

Seems like Jive should be able to fix this as it worked well 10 days ago.

I am quite disappointed that nobody seems to be working on this problem.

The forums are quite unusable this way; all this waiting - and then: ah, yes, we have to go back twice!  Nothing on the entire Internet behaves like that, so it's not something we get used to!

Unfortuntely, it seems to be true that nowadays nobody seems to care about things like this. Or these:

Also unfortunately, these forums do behave the chaotic way they do, so if one wants to use them, one has to get used to it. Sad.

Pat,

This mnorning I noticed the back arrow worked correctly for a few times then reverted back to needing 2 clicks.

Then went to disk clean up and deleted temp file.  Again it worked correctly once, then back to 2 clicks.

Not enough of a computer geek to see the problem.

As I said in my last message above, in my opinion the problem is that nowadays nobody cares for these small problems affecting the forums, no matter how easy they may be to fix.
