When I click the back button, it's not going back to the previous page on any GZ webpage.

If I click on the recent pages arrow, there's a URL http://platform.twitter.com/widgets/fol

Does anyone know what the hell this means?

OS: Win Vista

Browser: IE 8

I haven't seen this problem recently and the Twitter script has been here for years now. It could be the browser having problem with scripts - why not update to Internet Explorer 9 now?

Do you have the twitter widget installed ? it seems to be a problem with that. 

Try right click on the back button and see if that works.
