Back button gone funny...

I'm using safari on an ipad and the last couple of days I need two presses of the back button to go back one page. Its only happening on MN, not on any other websites. Slightly irritating!

Happening to me too on my galaxy s3 but its not just mumsnet, its happening on another forum too. What's going on? ?

Another one wondering what's going on. I have to press the back button at least twice (sometimes more) to get back to the previous page. This is happening on both iPad and the desktop Mac.

And to clarify, something does happen when you press the back arrow. It makes the forward arrow selectable! So something is happening somewhere....

Getting all this too on my iPad - where's all the mumsnet tech? Have they gone into hiding because they can't solve it grin?

They've been busy changing other stuff, elliptic! grin

Don't know if it's related, but there seem to be a awful lot of double/multiple posts on here today....

Oh, I thought something had gone wrong with my iPad. Obviously not. Same as everyone else - on Safari, back button needs pressing twice every time, only on MN. Weird.

Seems to be fixed! Yeah!!

Sorry about this.

To clarify:

a) this is only happening on Mumsnet?
b) it's only happening on Kindles and iPads? (Apols if I've missed anyone)

PLEASE SHOUT if it's happening to you but either (or both of) a) and b) do not apply to you
