Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Using Chrome, Windows XP:

Go to, click a question to view it, click back button to go back to

My irrelevant questions are grayed out, but they are not removed.

UPDATE: I just reproduced it by clicking on my own question, voting for it (getting the message that said I couldn't), then clicking back.

FOUND IT: Close all your open tabs/windows of Open a new tab, go to, click a question, click back, and there it is. It even does it when I am on, go back to my speed-dial page, click on StackOverflow, click question, click back.

It seems once you have been on the site a while, this no longer happens, but when you initially hit the site, this occurs (for me) 100% of the time.

Which version of Chrome are you using? – Grace Note Aug 19 '10 at 16:41
5.0.375.126 ... says it is up to date – Martin Aug 19 '10 at 17:05
so did you guys fix this? or did Chrome change something? It seems to be working now. – Martin Sep 30 '10 at 17:18

We can't reproduce this.

I just had it happen again twice this morning. I can get a screenshot of it ... anything else I can send to help? – Martin Aug 18 '10 at 13:48
