problem related to browser back button

I am working on a website and facing a problem. The problem is related to the browser back button. The description of the problem is as follows....

I login to the website from 2 browser windows using 2 different userids on the same machine. I navigate the website using various hyperlinks available in both the browsers. Now suppose the last hyperlink i clicked is in browser-window1, and then I click the back button in browser-window2 then instead of seeing the previous page of browser-window2 I am seeing the previous page of browser-window1.

Any help to solve this is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Sounds like you have problem with session with your server side code.

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
