Back button disabled ?

is the back button disabled ?

From: Chris Smith

disabling the back feature.... in other words mouse trapping is not very good practice…
...and tends to make people upset....


I couldn't agree more and I hate it too, but believe me, we're not doing that !

The problem however is that because we use a frame based design, our sub-pages always try to restore the outer frames, to prevent so-called "orphan pages".
In a number of situations this gives the un-wanted effect of "disabling the back button"
In fact the back button takes you actually one step back in history, but then you hit the page again that loads the outer frames.
In some browsers clicking the back button quickly twice does the trick or select the history list and skip one item.

The problem should not occur if you go directly into our website using our regular webaddress
