problem using internal links in cgi-output screens

I have these cgi programs that create pages,
which all works ok, BUT if I have an INTERNAL LINK
in the response-screen, and use it, and THEN go elsewhere,
and THEN use the BACK button I get a server error, but if I
go BACK AGAIN, then FORWARD, the original screen re-appears.

Is there some way to trick the system into managing this OK?

You can see an example of the problem by submitting
the DEMO form at http://www.wintergreen.com/formtool.hmtl,
then click on any INTERNAL link, then go elsewhere, then go BACK...

By the way, it DOES NOT happen with the 32-bit/Win95 or 16-bit Win3.1 Netscape 3 browsers, but it DOES happen
with the Netscape 2.02/16/Win3.1 browser!!!

I'd appreciate help on this one.

It happens because the browser is poor. Change browser. Maybe a few people only use the fossil browser(Netscape 2.02/16/Win3.1).

 That may happen because the poor browser doesn't support 'reposting submit data on reloading'. I have visited the test page. the submit form uses POST method. And in this method, submit data must be submited on loading. But the old browser doesn't seem to submit post data again on reloading. This is not problem in CGI. Don't worry about that! Other CGIs using POST form will act same!
