googleleads.g.doubleclick.net Can someone please help, why when I try to use the back button in IE9 do I see it is full of these pages and therefore I need to hit theback button 7 - 8 times to go back a page. I only get this with ePhotozine, is it a bug.

it's junk that Adblock deals with rather nicely
I wish I knew what it means in English......I'll try Adblock but it appears to be all the adverts on this site that causes the problem. Maybe I should move from IE9 but I don't like Google Chrome so any suggestions greatly appreciated (clean ones anyway)
Might be a dodgy IE add-on that is trying to overwrite regular ads with other ads and messing up your browser. To trouble shoot it once and for all try running IE without add ons
I've seen the same problem in IE8 and IE9, Chris, and on IE9 with no plugins enabled. It's very sporadic, though, and seems to be related to particular Google ad rotators.
I've had the problem for a couple of years on here.
It relates to all the cookie's wanting access to your system. I only notice the same behaviour as quoted because I have third party cookies set to 'always prompt'.
If you go to 'Tools' - 'Internet Options', click the 'Privacy tab', then click on 'Advanced', it should give you the option to set or reset how your system handles cookies.
I don't bother with the back buttons on this site now, It's quicker when viewing posts to hit the Ephotozine logo and refresh the home page than to press the back key up to ten times just to go back one page!

I had the same problem as well. Now I use Firefox for browsing EPZ as it doesn't have the same issues. Still use IE8 for other sites as Firefox is prone to freezing sometimes.
Do what wing suggests, that sounds like the answer to me
Thanks eveyone for your comments and suggestions. Iinitially thought I had picked up a virus or malware but it seems not, it's the way this site works. I now have a few ideas to try out.

How does that explain why I only get this problem with IE8 on EPZ? Never happens on any other site.
It's because ePz uses scripts (many of which send cookies) from about 20 other sites. Other websites you use probably don't do that, (relying mainly on internal / self-hosted scripts). This is a screengrab of what scripts can run on a typical ePz page:
tried the suggestions, now it tells me which sites are trying to send me cookies so I can block them. And yes there are plenty that are in your list. Trouble is it still doesn't speed up back clicking, still have to click 8-10 times before anything happens. Back to Firefox.
If you do what wing suggests and set your browser to automatically accept cookies it should fix things for you.

Then why does this site?
It is obviously the root cause of a lot of problems that folks have suffered - interesting that 50% of them are G***** related
Sorry Chris - can't bring myself to say the name
I use the Sporting Life a lot, but never have any issues and look at the content that they deliver
