I am a complete Newbie when it comes to Linux, and was very satisfied when I resolved the first problem with my brand new Kubuntu distro on my own, through tips on various websites.
Now, however, after having it installed for over seven hours, I need help
My problem is this: Whenever I browse the internet, OR folders on my computer, after some time, the browser backs up to the previous page, as if I had pressed the 'back'-button. The time it takes for the browser to do so varies from less than a second to more than a minute. I have tried both Konqueror (that came with the Kubuntu distro) and Firefox 3, and both have the same symptoms.
A way to circumvent the problem is to always open a link in a new tab, which is how I managed to log in here and type up this post in the first place. I suspected my mouse to have something to do with the issue at first, since the problem seemed worse when I used the scroll wheel, but I've ignored the wheel for an hour now, and the problem persists.
If anyone can offer any help, it would be greatly appreciated. I have a Kubuntu 8.04 (hardy) distro.
