    this has been driving me bonkers for months, i wish apple would give you an option whether you want to reload the page everytime you swipe (i see sometime sit does NOT reload if i actually click the back button, i don't get why this behavior is different depending on if you use the button or swipe, aren't they supposed to be the same?!)

    just noticed that if you click the show-previous-page button, reloading will not happen.

    Obviously it is Safari bug.

    I've been having the same problem, primarily on Reddit, where I was often getting a blank white page that wouldn't load.

    What worked for me was to disable "Swipe between pages" in the trackpad preferences, and then use Better Touch Tool to recreate them using the same gesture, paired with the keyboard shorcuts command-[ and command-]. This seems to be working perfectly so far.

    This is obviously a bug, a serious bug.  My solution is to use Chrome instead until Apple has a new version of Safari.

    What has happened with Apple? Why, this is exactly the kind of hassle that you want to come away from when, switching to mac from pc...

    I've been a PC user for my entire life. Now that I decide to finally give in and buy a brand new MBP this starts happening! Unnaceptable Apple!


    I don't know what kind of updates they've been doing but not only Safari is slow, everything else is!

    Im haiting this OS more and more each day!

    Arrrrrrggggghhhh....  Seriously.. Is Internet Explorer available for my 3k retina mac? Perhaps that isn't completly annoying.  I've had macs for a long time, and this just takes the $%£@

    I'm having the same problem. Although it disappears if you disable the adblock extension but that's not really an option for me. So, I'm kind of torn between Firefox with vimperator, which is awesome. And Safari, just because I like bookmark and tab sync.

    I wish this could be controlled via a Preference setting.  When browsing tethered to my phone, it REALLY SLOWS down the user experience!

    For me, the issue of a reload/update (rather than a refresh from cache) when pressing the "Show the previous page" back button only occurred when I had the Safari Extension "LinkThing" installed and enabled.  If I disable it, then it works (i.e. refreshes from cache); if I enable it, then it doesn't (i.e. it reloads/updates from the actual website).


    I wanted some of the functionality from LinkThing such as removing the URL redirection from Google links and wanted the invisible (show only when hovering) status bar to show link addresses.  I now get this functionality from the Safari extensions "Detox" and "Invisible Status Bar".  I also have "SafariRestore" and "Open in Internet Explorer 1.0" (the latter from Parallels) and none of these have a problem.


    So only certain extensions trigger the problem from Apple where going back reloads/updates the page.  There was some reply in this thread that gave a technical reason for this.

    I've not used any extensions and I'm absolutely still having this problem. It occured on my MBP as well as my new rMBP.

  • sgeyedoc Level 1 Level 1

    I had a similar problem in that when I quit Safari (6.0.2, 10.8.2), Safari would not open to the Home page. The Home page WOULD load if I closed the current Window without quitting Safari and then loaded a NEW window via File - Safari would then set the new window to the Home page! I solved the problem. I had to check the "Close windows when quitting an application" button in SystemPreferences/General. That solved the problem for me.

  • s2_bo Level 1 Level 1

    Apple, if you do one thing in 2013, then sort out this magoure issue! its driving us mad!

  • Areo66 Level 1 Level 1

    Problem continues...

    With or without cache, with or without extensions, with gesture or button click, doing it slowly or fast, doing it with two or three fingers. It reload every time.
