In IE if you are going through multiple pages of issues and click on one if you click the "back" button you are brought back to page 1 of the issues. This is a pain because you then have to remember what page you were on and click back through the pages to find it.

It's not only IE issue, it concerns Safari and Firefox on Mac OS X too. It looks like one of AJAX drawbacks..

It happens using Safari 3 on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) too.

Couldn't fix the subject. It's not a IE Only defect.

Is this still the case? Does the defect happen when you view several individual issues, or when viewing several reports in the issue list?

#6 Updated by David Petersen over 12 years ago

Yes this is still a problem. Since the pages on the issues listing are being loaded via ajax calls the back button stops doesn't let you back through the pages. In order to fix this Redmine needs to use something like Ben Alman's Back Button and Query Library which has a hashhange event that can be used to add back button support.

Any update? It is really annoying when go through issue list, forum, search result, etc with multiple pages.

In #7594, I've created a patch to temporarily solve this problem until a real solution exists. It disables Ajax updates and uses direct linking for pagination.
