SYMPTOMS

Assume that you have a webpage that is inside a frame. In the webpage, you use a hyperlink to submit a form. For example, you use code that resembles the following to submit the form:
<P><a href="#" onclick="NextPage();" >Go to next page Using Form Submit</a></P>
 
<script language="javascript">
function NextPage(){
       thisForm.action = "Page2.asp?";
       thisForm.submit();
}
</script>
When you use Windows Internet Explorer 9 to navigate the frame through a form post as shown in this code, the travel log is not updated. For example, if you click the Back button in Internet Explorer 9, you will not return to the previous page as expected.
