For the past few days, when I hit my back button to go back a page or exit a forum, it is not taking me back to the spot on the page where I was earlier. It takes me to the top of the page. Seems to happen about 75% of the time and in many different areas of the site. BTW, using Safari, latest build. Anyone else experiencing this?

Sometimes there is a "lag" time before it relocates position for me. I attibuted that to the busy server, but what do I know. I was just glad to avoid the "busy server" screen! :rolleyes:

The forum software was updated to vBulletin 3.0.4 last week. I've noticed a few little differences in behavior too.

Wow it is like finding a buddy who was also taken by aliens .... I have the same thing and it drives me nuts. I do have it with more sites and at first I thought it was a difference between firefox Mac vs PC. It must be a setting but haven't found it yet. I sure hope it is not a site specific server setting.

This problem is making reading the forums a hassle.

I don't think there is anything we can fix. As far as I know, this is just how this version of vBulletin works. I've noticed that it handles cached pages differently, allowing browsers to use a local copy, which isn't correct if you go back to a page that has since changed. So I end up refreshing more often if I know I'm returning to a page that has new posts.

This isn't anything we've done differently... haven't changed anything. I think it's more of a browser behavior.

The server update seems to have fixed this problem.
