IE8 BACK button broken

Last Modified: 2013-12-08
I recently completed and launched an ASP.Net web site while IE7 was the standard, Ever since IE8 both we and our users have problems trying to use the BACK button which used to work just fine. In IE8 some times it works and some times it don't! Why? How do I resolve this? I already know about the need for clicking on compatability view so the layout is not screwed but how to get the BACK button to do what it is supposed to do consistently, just like it always used to. Thanks again Microsoft! :(
Oh, why not, if any one knows why we suddenly have to click compatability view and how to resolve it so we do not have to I would also appreciate it. I guess MS has nothing better to do than break things that worked just fine to begin with. Thanks,
