This annoyance has been up before, try.

Some have stated that it is a general (although seemingly rare) browser issue and that they have seen it on unrelated sites/pages as well.

In any case, it seems to happen more often in these forums than elsewhere.

I have only seen it here, and it happens consistently, and on multiple

machines.

try,

I have just dug up a few earlier threads where it has been up:

It seems to be a combination of possibly faulty  Javascripts used by Jive (or others elsewhere) and browser (version).

I see it often, but not always, in these forums, and I believe I have seen it a few times elsewhere (luckily forgotten).

Original topic http://forums.adobe.com/thread/988260

There was also a topic recently where John C. explained why this occurs, and why this cannot be fixed, but I cannot find that topic now.

For me this is one of the most annoying bugs on the Internet ever!  If you spend a lot of time in the Adobe forums, you start to automatically double-click the back button.  Then when you go somewhere else, your fingers continue double-clicking, with quite idiotic results!

Another side effect of that bug is that after you double-backed, the browser's forward button disappears.  This can also be quite annoying if you just quickly went back to check something, then want to go forward where you came from.
