    Facebook links in back button

    In the past couple of weeks I started noticing that each time you go back from a thread to the list of threads 2 Facebook links appear in the recent pages (back button) list. This makes the back button erratic, at best. I can work around it by using the drop-down and going directly to the last valid URL, but this is getting to be a PIA.

    I'm using IE8, and can't really change browsers (for a variety of reasons). Is there some setting I'm missing to disable any Facebook linkage? Clearing the cookies doesn't seem to help - it just comes back.

    I did some searching and found that this comes up quite often with forums driven by vBulletin. I'm guessing it's related to the "like" button on the threads.

    I've noticed that the back button rarely works correctly on this site, at least on IE. I never knew what caused it.

    But what I do at home is just open everything in new tabs or windows. Since I have dialup at home, any time I can avoid reloading a page is a plus.
