Browser's "back" button functionality

I am working on web based application.

The browser's "back" button functionality is not working in some cases.

1. Go to 'Saved Search Criteria' page.It contains a select box and details section.
2. Select criteria 's1' from the select box- all details of s1 would be displayed.
3. select the option 's2' from select box, it will load the details of 's2'.
4. Click on back button, details of s2 are shown and not of s1.

I checked the entries under back button. They were just 2(which is correct).Also, even after clicking back button multiple times, the details were not updated.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance!

Best Regards,
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
