Re: What's up with my "Back-Button"?

It could be due to ad scripts that are designed to get around third-party cookie blocking. Basically a site will redirect to the ad network site where the cookie is now a site cookie and thus not blocked, and then redirect you back to the original site.

Pressing Back would take you to the ad network site and immediately send you back to the site you came from.
