    I've been seeing this issue in the last few days, and am wondering if it might be a bug introduced either in the recent Safari 8.0.7 update, or in 10.10.4. Anyone else seeing this?

    Basically, you hit "back", often after a Google search, and get a blank page. You have to reload to get the page you were on.

    Yep! Been noticing this a lot to especially with Google. I actually can't think of any other website it happens to except after a Google search. I'll need to refresh the site.

    Same issue with me. I assuming it might be some setting, but haven't bothered to track it down.

    I'm having the same issue. Only on google searches.
    Sometimes I click re-fresh and it reloads the page, sometimes it doesn't and I have to redo the search.

    I've got the same issue - I'm trying now, with the aid of the "Develop" menu, to "Empty Caches" & "Disable Caches" to see if this helps. I don't know why it might, but I figure it won't hurt to try .......

    Yes. I'm having the exact same problem - a lot of sites are causing blank pages to occur. Very annoying.

    Same problem here. It happens only when going back to a Google search. Blank page and have to reload to see the search results again. Tried removing the cache file on disk, turning off add-ons. No luck yet. Anyone report this to Apple?

    Good news, I haven't seen this behavior since I installed the El Capitan public beta. Looks like there is hope for a fix, even though it is out a couple of month...

    I've also de-activated AdBlock and the "blanck page" issue seems to be gone. Haven't tried to re-activate it though. Just happy so far that this work around works.

    Safari has never worked properly for me ... in any version ... ever ... when trying to go back a page.

    This issue has been killing me. I just used the "don't run on this domain" feature and pointed that to www.google.com. The issue seems to be resolved.

    EDIT: Or not. Had to completely uninstall it. Oh well.

    I too have this issue. Seems related to 8.0.7 update. Downloaded recent Webkit and get same issue. I'm not a Apple Developer but I've submitted freedback to Apple.

    UPDATED: Tested using the latest Webkit Nightly Build and lo and behold, its now working for me.. So hopefully we will see this resolved in the next Safari update.

    Started getting this bug today. It's driving me nuts. Hoping for a fix soon and not having to wait for the next major OS update.
