how to go back in the browser back button.
There may not be a dedicated back button.
there is a button bottom right off screen which exits the browser app when pressed once. I want to return to previous page. For example google result and if I want to go back to google search I press back

Thanks for the points in the related question rgb192

I just tested this my Galaxy S Plus
I opened google ... let's call this Screen 1
I searched for Something and got list of links ... let's call this Screen 2
I went to another website from a link (on screen 2) .... let's call this Screen 3

From Screen 3, I pressed the bottom right button and I was returned to screen 2
From Screen 2, I pressed the bottom right button and I was returned to screen 1
So I was using the button on the bottom right as a back button.

This exactly the functionality you are looking for.
It work's quite well (provided you don't go back too far and wind up on the desktop)

If this isn't working for you, then something must be wrong with your setup.

p.s. I just tried it Firefox and it's exactly the same!
