    Hi is it possible that the recent installation of Spywareblaster is stopping Firefox's "go back one page" arrow from working?
    Thanks

    Did you remove SpywareBlaster to see if it makes any difference?

    No problems here with both installed. Back button works fine.

    Thank you. A quick, obvious and logical approach to my problem. I'm being overly cautious at present having just eradicated (fingers crossed) some malware. I'll give it a go.

    i don't think spywareblaster would have any impact on "firefox" since it only adds activex-killbits to the registry, which only effects IE, and adds sites to IE's "restricted sites zone", again, which only effects IE..

    using a HOSTS file can effect a browser's back-buttons.. sometimes you just have to click the back-button a couple of extra times, or, otherwise, work around the problem:

    Nope. SpywareBlaster doesn't do anything that should be able to cause this.

    (Although, to clarify a comment made earlier - SpywareBlaster does indeed help protect Firefox. And many other browsers.)

    If this isn't on all sites, you may have come across sites that utilize an annoying Javascript to manipulate the back button history. This, unfortunately, is becoming somewhat common.

    Hi,

    There are many reasons that you may find SpywareBlaster helpful and useful, even with other security software like that. For example, to help prevent sites from tracking you, or sending annoying / tracking / potentially unwanted Javascripts.

    I've got SpywareBlaster for many years and wouldn't do without it. :thumb:
