Ok so I hit up G-News and see a story from the Mirror newspaper that is interesting

Mirror link

unfortunately the site stops my back button from working!

Since found out that some sites do this for security reasons, but mostly to keep you "locked" on that page, well this will never do!

Quick question, how do I switch off this behaviour? I assume it must be different on each browser!

I clicked on the link and came back with no problem.

How one attempts to disable the back button depends on the scripting language used on the site. Since most use Javascript, if you disable Javascript you can prevent the behavior. Scott.
