I have a page in asp where there is a back button.

<td width="59"><a href="javascript:history.back(-1);"><img src="img/back.gif" width="59" height="25" border="0"&#12288; alt="BACK"></td>

when clicked on back button it is giving error like "for security reasons information posted can not be automatcially displayed. plz click refresh button ". this code works fine on a machine with IE some  machine  but at some other machine, it is giving such error.
Does this occur with some  version of IE? and if so, how to avoid that?
can anyone suggest me a solution?
thanks in advance..

It's not an error, actually it's the feature of IE browser, as your page before the current page is generating dynamic data and the page itself is not cached. Try post your page before the current page here, and remove any html tag, or server side script that remove page cache.

and always remember to put a "return false" in your link, try:

<td width="59"><a href="back()" onclick="javascript:history.back(-1);return false;"><img src="img/back.gif" width="59" height="25" border="0"&#12288; alt="BACK"></td>

do you have a link of that page, or snapshot of that page?

just do a test by replacing the javascript history.back with window.location, see if this problem remain or not, like:

<td width="59"><a href="back()" onclick="javascript:window.location.href='previouspage.asp';return false;"><img src="img/back.gif" width="59" height="25" border="0"&#12288; alt="BACK"></td>
