OFTEN, when I hit the back button or swipe back, I get a Safari page that is a day or two old instead of the current page. DRIVES ME NUTS. Chrome? Firefox? These might be on the hotizon if I can't get this fixed.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    Apple omitted the back button on Safari 6...

     

    Enable the Develop menu so you can delete caches and see if that makes a difference.

     

    From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Advanced tab.

     

    Select:  Show Develop menu in menu bar

     

    Now from the menu bar click Develop > Empty Caches

     

    Quit then relaunch Safari. The Command key and back arrow on your keyboard acts as the back button.

    Let me re phrase that. The back button is available, but pressing Delete on your keyboard no longer functions as it did in previous Safari versions.
