iframe source getting overridden

I have a html page having two iframes with two different sources.

I will be moving forward to some other pages.

When I am coming back to that html page using "internet explorer's" "back option" two iframes are getting loaded with the first iframes' source.

When I refresh that page exclusively, then the second frame is loaded correctly by its original source.

I want to know is that a bug of internet explorer ?

Is there anyway I can handle it in my code, reloading that page once after it is getting loaded, so that the back option does load it properly.

Browsers have always have problems with frames and iframes, that is why people recommend avoiding them.

I agree. Here's the link:
