The most common problem is that we write what we see in front of us but the fact is that it is known/clear only to us and not to everyone.So you have to always brief it to an extent.What you wrote is what was happening before you and not what is happening within!

The back button will always show the previous page. If the user tries to do an action on that page, your backend should not let it happen.

Only way to get an expired page is to use no caching headers and posts, but that kills your user's experience.

When user clicks on the back button, you can make it appear to remain on the current page using a simple javascript like


The same can be accomplished by location.replace(url) in javascript.
You may also google to see if you want to disable the browser back button altogether.

window.history.forward(1);


Don't do that, nor try to attempt disabling the back button: InterfaceDesignersRule1

hi,

Thank you sir, I've tried it and also it works. But this javascript is working out well only in internet explorer and not in mozilla firefox, while trying in mozilla it is going back once and then closing the session. Please help me to solve this browser issue.....

Thanks in advance.
