Websites that automatically forward you to a second page so that every time you hit "back" it sends you to the first page, which instantly forwards you back to their main page.

That has to be one of the most annoying things in webdesign.

Damn hi-jackers.

Yeah, i really hate that too. I have the back button on my mouse, if I crackhead clikc it about 4 times as fast as possible I can sometimes beat the auto forward and get out of the website and back to where I was.
Sometimes, sometimes not. Depends how strong my mouse-fu is that day.

Me too.

I fucking hate that shit and will leave and never go back. Why the hell don't the web designers get that?

it's either javascript or a meta tag refresh.

oh we get it, in fact we hate it too.

I always do the "if you aren't forwarded in 5 seconds, click here" deal for that reason.

Try holding down shift (NOT SHTF). and pressing back. Works for me, im on IE. Or try using firefox.

That's what I also say. There is no way I'd ever go back to that site.

Right-click the back button. It should allow you to select how far back you want to go.
Link Posted: 1/27/2006 6:20:26 PM EDT
Can't you just X off the window?

It's already disabled via an add in on firefox.

Sometimes you're a few levels deep into a website and you'd rather hit back once than reload the page and find your way back to where you were.

Thank you! I learned something new today.

You're not alone. Definately annoying and serves no purpose IMO.

I despise that, Porn sites are notorious for that. Oddly enough though, I find myself going back again...and again...and again.

That, and the "pop under" piss me off.

It's not performed via javascript, it's a simple HTTP redirect.

Try using the arrow next to the back button on most IE browsers
It will open a drop down menu like a favorites menu
run your mouse down past the "bad" one, and click
It will transport you backward, out of the TRAP

Stay off the porn sites and you will not have that problem
