In Windows 7, when I browse on a page, how do I make the screen
come back to the exact page I was browsing? Example: browsing
this site, Tom's Hardware and I am on page 3, about 3/4 down page
and I click on a thread to read and afterwards use the back arrow to
return(or right -click back) it takes me back to the latest post on the
first page of the site instead of the precise spot I was on Page 3. My
XP desktop lets me 'snap back' to the page I had left prior.

I was using Firefox while making original post and the return reverts
back to the forum's first page; and first post. I will see how it acts in
Internet Explorer which I seldom use anymore.

It reverts back to page # and thread position in Internet Explorer browser.
But it does not in the Firefox browser?? Might it be a tick within Firefox
somewhere? That is sad when I can not return to my last page marker.

I just right-click the link and open it in a new tab or window. This leaves the original page open and exactly where I was. When done with what I linked to, I just close it.

Works fine with my Firefox so Firefox does support that feature. Go to "about:config" and look at all the option in bold (the are the ones changed from default).
