    Hi!

    I am a new member running an iPad 1 with ios5. My problem occurs in Safari.

    Everything is working ok except with some sites the back button takes me to an old page.
    For example, if I choose an article from Techmeme and then use the back button to go
    Back to Techmeme, it takes me to the previous "edition" with a different article
    On top. It is as if I am being taken to an older cached version of the site.

    I have checked settings but don't see anything that provides a fix.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Iowan

    Weird.

    Try going to Settings > Safari and clearing History.

    Also clear the app from the multitask bar.


    Close: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app. This will remove it from RAM and insure a clean start the next time you launch the app.
