When I click the Back button in Chrome, it just does round and round, and does not bring me back. My history is fine. What could have caused this?

Edit: It seems to have a problem with and all the stack-exchange sites ,in particular...

Does it do this on every page every time? What exactly do you mean by "just does round and round"? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jul 26 '11 at 17:27
Its like its loading, but never actually loads the page, or even the URL. – soandos Jul 26 '11 at 17:27
Clean all your cache and try again. Also, does this happen for every site? – Traveling Tech Guy Jul 26 '11 at 18:24
Mostly seems like superuser, but im sure there are more. Cache clearing did nothing – soandos Jul 26 '11 at 18:39
Does the same thing happen when you hit the backspace key? Superuser also uses a lot of JS/Ajax, but you shouldn't run into any issues with the latest version of Chrome... – Breakthrough Jul 26 '11 at 19:32

I had this happening as well. It appears that disabling all my extensions and then re-enabling them corrected it for me, though I'm not sure why that worked or whether it completely fixed it.

Just press Alt + .

What version of Chrome are you using?
