Since the quintessential Ajax application has a single page, there general isn't a "back button problem". If the user hits the back button, he gets sent back to the previous site. The Refresh button, on the other hand, is a different matter...
Could you explain how your app is set up such that the back button does not bring them to the previous site? That would give us some insight into possible solutions.
Are you using a hidden iframe for the back-end calls or the XMLHttpRequest object? (When I hear the term "Ajax" used today, I assume usage of the XMLHttpRequest object.)
The iframes mechanism can have back-button issues of course since you are submitting requests into the iframe. [ October 17, 2005: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]

I am putting more focus on it..
I have one page search.jsp which has form elements that takes diferent search criteria.(Make,Model,year and other elements)
I am using ajax for populating Models on the selection of Make.so on the onchange event of Make i will try to populate dropdown of Model.I have Submit button also on the page.User hits submit and search listS the vehicles.Problem is when User try to go back and modify search They hit Back button of the browser.so it goes to search.jsp with the previous filled criteria by the user ..Here i don't have the Model list that waS populated from ajax from the Make.ihave Make though.Model Dropdown is empty.I am using Struts html tag library.so my all form fields are like html:select html ptions html:form and other strust html tag library.In ajax i am calling a servlet which gets list of vehicle ids and send an xml via XMLHTTPRequest object
