    Well ive turned off AdBlock Plus to see if it replicates and waited. Mine is still fine.

    In older versions of FireFox you had browser.frames.enabled which can be set to false to disable iframes. Im not really sure if you can add that string to newer versions or not.

    At this time the only other thing i can suggest is installing AdBlock Plus and remove any other ad blockers. Its worth a shot and its available directly through the FireFox addons.

    I do have Adblock Plus installed and for me, it makes no difference if it is enabled or disabled for ECF - I still have to press the back button 6 times - grrrrrrrrrr:(

    I'm surprised that FF allowed that plugin for Flash. They shut mine down on an update once and it's not even on the newest #57 Quantum version.

    Anyways, no BB issue here using that with Ublock Origin.

    They use shockwave but no flash support anymore for the 64 bit.

    I didn't want to cloud the issue but the same problem exists in Quantum, I have the beta version.

    Evilgrin, I really do appreciate the help but FF works on every site but this one so I will wait to see if it gets fixed. until then I can just sit on the sidelines as it's real frustrating.

    and I think it is fixed. Both the back button and the refresh button are working for me this morning. I hope they are for you too Marc.

    Big Thanks to those working behind the scenes trying to get everything back up and running properly.

    That's good to hear and yes right now I'm good.

    It's real important to mentioned that with everything Oliver had going on he worked with me for a little over an hour attempting to find the root cause of the problem. Running a forum this size has a ton of daily burdens, I know because I own one myself just smaller and it can sometimes be a PITA. For him to take time to work on a membership issue when he is attempting a major upgrade to the website speaks volumes to his support for the membership.

    Thanks to you and @Oliver for all the hard work, but I'm still having the same back button problem. It is OK on the Forum front page and ad-free areas like "Blogs" etc, but as soon as I go into a thread with adverts, I'm pressing that button 6 times to get back out.

    Hey gang - just to reassure you that the devs are trying to resolve this. I did some experiments with @Marc411 the other day and was able to locate the issue - it's now up to the devs to work out a solution.

    This is a bit above my pay grade so I can't tell you for certain that there will be a solution - but we are working on it right now. I really don't want to "tell you to use another browser", so I am trying to get this fixed.

    I've been reading around this a bit..

    Can those of you that are seeing this problem tell me whether you're using the 32 or 64 bit version of FF?

    Also, for clarity, can those experiencing this confirm that this issue started recently (in the last 6 weeks) since I started making changes and was never a problem before?

    My version of Firefox is 56.0.2 (32 bit)

    Yes, it started in the last 6 weeks and was never a problem before.

    To be a bit more precise, I think it started on or around 1 or 2 October, so 4 weeks ago. It did seem to resolve for a short while sometime between then and now but is definitely still a problem at the moment.

    I do appreciate your spending time on this.

    Out of interest, I've just logged in on my husband's computer which is running Firefox 56.0.2 (64 bit) and had the same back button problem there.

    Didn't happen before changes, I don't think I noticed the problem at all yesterday - or today (knock wood)
