I'm trying out Selenium from http://www.openqa.org/selenium/ to test my web pages.
The problem is: it doesn't seem to recognize the 'back' button, so if I
click on a link,
click back and
click on another link,

Selenium doesn't go back and therefore doesn't find the 2nd link.

Never used the tool in question, but it sounds like an issue that should be logged/asked of the provider.  Have they told you it is a problem with your site?  If so, are there special circumstances on some of your pages that cause this to happen?

I found out that I had downloaded the IDE instead of the core files.
The IDE gives you a taste of the potential, but the real work is done in the core files.
If you want to see it in action, you should go to
http://www.openqa.org/selenium-core/demo1/TestRunner.html
and then click the "all" button.

The core files have many more tests, but you have to remember to run Selenium on a browser from the same computer that Selenium is testing.
The faq says something about if your code is on computer A, then Selenium has to be on computer A.

For Going Back to Browser History, Click Selenium.goBack() will take you to the last page visited. Same as Browsers Back Button.
