Hi glasgow lass, is this when trying to log out of the boards or when clicking from one part of the boards to another? Can you tell me which button or link you are clicking on?

Hi GG, this happens when am going from one page to another ( any page ) or thread.Im not clicking any buttons just the arroow on top left hand side of my computer, Ive always moved about that way on here and once Im loged in I dont touch my key board till I want to post so its just clicking the mouse Im doing nothing new. Been having this prob for about three months.Thanks for your fast reply smile.gif Lass.

PS,, had to click about sixteen times just to get back to main page.

I've had this problem also, glasgow lass, and not just on the boards. I think it may be caused by cookies or if you have other Interney Explorer windows open. Two ways to get round it:

  1. rapidly click the back button twice and this will take you back, but sometimes this does take you two pages back so you then have to go forward!
  2. a better option is to use the small blue triangle just to the right of the forward button: click this and it gives you a list of the pages in your recent history and you can select from the list the page you wish to go to.
There is also the option of using the 'backspace' button on the keyboard as this doubles for the browser back button,.

Please try these options and let me know how you get on. I'll also check if their is a better explanation online.

Hi All,

Yes, it's better never to logout, then you don't have to login. Of course, if you use a shared PC perhaps you prefer to logout. Also, staying logged in relies on not deleting cookies, as it these small text files which save your login information in the background allowing the browser to log you in automatically when you return.
