Hi all,this may be a stupid question and I am not a new user but have been having a problem with the site navigation.
Lets say your scrolling through one on the forum/session/auction or other sections and you find a topic you want to view on one of the pages for that topic. After viewing that topic I usually hit "back arrow". This resets all the list from the forums/sessions/auctions back to the beginning. Is there a way to go back where you left off on the forum/session/auctions from you current topic page without re-setting to page one of that forum/session/auction ?

eg: I am on page 3 of the auctions and find an auction I want to view, I click to view the auction. When done I usually hit the back arrow. After I hit the back arrow I am on page one of the auctions again and need to remember that I left off on page 3 to continue shopping.

Any other way?

Perhaps it isn't the elegant solution you're looking for, but I just open a new tab when browsing through those boxes. Then I can close the tab a resume browsing where I left off.

Me, too. When you know you want to come back to an exact location, right-click the link you want to go to and either open it in a new window or a new tab. When you close that tab or window, you'll be exactly where you were before.

Yes, Open in New Tab is your friend. Usually, you can click the mouse wheel (or middle button) to do it. It's become so essential to me, on a laptop with a touchpad and two buttons, I map the left button to be the middle button since I can left click by tapping on the pad.
