I've been trying to support an issue with IE8 where when a user clicks the back button, then the forward button, the back button becomes disabled. If you google for "IE8 back button stops working" you'll see that I am not alone. No one out there has come up with a solution for this yet. Short of having to reinstall IE8 on every machine(many, many machines) I was hoping ask and find a solution. Thanks!


I've tried running IE8 without add-ons and restored the settings of the browswer and neither worked.

Have you tried resetting IE8?

I sure did and it didn't work. Someone suggested running "repair" on IE but I don't know where to go to do that. – Achilles Jul 30 '10 at 13:42
