Hi Roy et al, yes we are having exactly the same problem. Here is the
response my husband got from Familysearch (he thought it was our
computer but when he tried a different computer he had the same
If you are searching FamilySearch Internet and you click your Web
browser's back button, you will sometimes not be allowed to perform
another search. (The second search may result in a page loading error
message or display error message.) You can avoid this error in one of
the following ways:
. On the Search Results screen, click [refine search] in the
top right portion of the screen.
. On the Record view (for an individual or for a family),
click Search Results in the top left portion of the screen, and then
click [refine search] in the top right portion of the next screen.
If you click the Back button, and you get a Page Expired message, do one
or all of the following:
. Make sure that you have cookies enabled for your browser (or
for the FamilySearch site, if you have Internet Explorer 6).
. Download the latest update for your browser the Microsoft
Web site (www.microsoft.com).

let you all know if it works.
Good luck all!

It is not just less simple, it has become intolerably and
Whereas previously when you went back to the search screen the
information you had entered was still there, now I get a warning
message saying the information has not been retained and I have to
enter it all over again - EVERY time I do a search. So you get up a
list of entries you are interested in, look at the full data, go to
the source etc, but when you try to go back to the list of entries
you find they've gone and you have to start all over again by
re-inputting the information into the search fields. I have on
occasions ended up almost screaming at the screen.
Is anyone else finding this and, if so, does anyone have any
ideas as to what can be done about it? I e-mailed the FamilySearch
support but all I got back was a message saying it must be my fault
or the fault of my browser. Trying to get help or information from
Salt Lake City is like trying to extract a genuine, truthful answer
from a politician! I get the feeling that most of the time they don't
understand what you are talking about.
