Strange Problem

Fired up my 'puter when I got home and "bam" all of a sudden mozilla and netscape would not let me use the back button. Anyone ever seen this ? What caused it? Galeon is fine.

Was running Moz 1.1 and Netscape 6.2.3

now i use opera in linux and i had this problem ..
there is a history setting in preferences section which when enabled disables back button in browsers.
Something like this might exist for mozilla .....

otherwise pack the .mozilla folder and restart it ..
