Does the Internet Explorer 9 back button not work correctly for you?

I have had issues, as well as other people, with the Internet Explorer 9 Back button not working. I click it and it doesn't go back. I have to click it a bunch for it to go back. If you have found a fix for this, please state the fix below, so others can be helped.

Works fine for me on three systems that I use.

However, I have found that a number of sites insert ads and the like into the back que and as such it appears that back is not working as you must hit the back button multiple times to wade through this junk to get to the previous site url.

Right click the back button to see this when it happens.

Sometimes it doesn't work but I think it's related to the website your on. Click and hold the mouse button on the back arrow and you'll see what site is blocking it. I just click, hold, and move the arrow over the site I wanted to go back to .
Hope I explained that well enough.

pbcopter is right. That is exactly what the issue is, not IE9 itself.

This is exactly what causes it. Annoying as hell though.

Yea. It is really annoying. Along with the face that Youtube is laggy on IE an chrome is perfectly smooth. I have a quad core and dedicated graphics card. Youtube shouldn't be laggy.

Particular Sites

I had noticed that the problem was particular sites. That is one reason I had never really trouble shot it. I suspect some sites are preventing you from exiting because of ads.

Same problem here. Resetting IE9 to defaults doesn't help. I can only get to original Google search page by rightclicking the back button.

This needs to be resolved as it is a flaw in IE9. That said, I use Firefox.
