I am going to an HTML browser page and it is taking 2 clicks to go to the previous browser page.  Why does this happen?

Thanks,

It could be because of the way the site loads some of its ads.  If they use an iframe to load the ads, chances are, when you press the back button you're actually just going back in the iframe that the ad appears in.  I have this happen a lot to me on the site devcomments.com (it's incredible annoying).

It can also be an internal forwarding that happens when you access the page.  Some sites will go to an initial page and forward you to another page depending on if you are using certain browsers, have javascript off, etc...
