Getting Page Cant Be Displayed.

By lynn ·
I am on the message forums of and using the search feature which worked fine until SP2 was installed. Now when I do a search and it pulls up the posts found and I click that post to read it than click back to go back to that list, when I click back I get "The page cannot be displayed" Before SP2 I would go back to my list of posts and this is very annoying. I am sure there is a fix for this but thus far havent had any luck finding it.

Thanks for your help

One thing I could suggest would be to turn off the fancy smancy Pop Up Blocker built into SP2.

This will solve your issue..

Good Luck

I've noticed the same behavior on some pages.

If the page has a <Back link, use it.

Or, right-click the link and choose Open in new window. Then you can just close the window after you are through, and return to the original open page.

The webmaster may have programmatically changed the behaviour. This would be the case if the page you viewed uses session ID, or cookie, or even SSL. There was an IE browser flaw reported last year withr regard to the back button.
Apparently it is not a good idea, especially if you encounter an error page, THEN click the back button.
