Getting error message on search results page when clicking back button

I do a search, I am presented with a list of results, I click on one of the results to go to the detail page, I then click the back button and I am presented with a Document Expired security caching error message.

When I click try again, the page loads as expected.

I've added the page in question and the error message

This is an issue with fire fox and post data.

Heres a scenario to describe the problem:

you go to the search page, and enter search terms, the search page post to the results page, you view the details of a record and hit the back button, the action that loaded the previous page was the search form submit.

Fire Fox security settings prevents the search form submit from happening again, and instead gives this error.

Te best solution is to have a link to the results page on the details page so that the user does not need to use the back button.

OK, thanks Jason. I've added a link as you mentioned, but I assumed it to be a bit of a botch, but if it's something I can't control, then that's good enough for me.

Thanks again.

Issue in Chrome too

I have a client complaining about this. I noticed it happens in Chrome as well, although the error message is slightly different. I'll add the button, but for so many people it's axiomatic to hit the back button or use the keyboard shortcut for back. Is there any other way to code the page in order to avoid the form resubmission issue?

This is a normal browser behavior. It is not something that can be overridden at the page level.

That's what i was afraid of. I added buttons, but had to separate out my detail page as I originally had all results pages going to only one detail page (which would be most efficient), but had to add a detail page dedicated to search results.

Lots of shopping sites out there have search results pages that are accessible with browser back buttons. They must use a different method of generating search results?
