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

Make a vote. Click on a link on the page. Hit the back button.

At least for me (FF 3.0 on Ubuntu), I see the orange vote marker, but the number has not been changed. Often, I voted up an answer that had 0 votes, making me believe that somebody down voted it.

Of course, refreshing the page fixes it, but this is sort of annoying.

EDIT: As I figured, this seems to be a browser cache issue. I still consider this a bug as the orange vote marker is there, but not the changed number. I don't know much about web development, but it seems to me like this should be possible to fix. Any ideas why this is happening?

Hmm, Safari 4 on a Mac works as it should... maybe it's a FF thing? – Kyle Cronin Jun 30 '09 at 1:12

I don't think many in the SO Community will be confused by that behavior. After all, you're navigating backwards into your cache :)

Hmm, I figured it was a browser cache thing, but I'm not sure why the orange vote marker would be there but the number would remain the same. – Zifre Jun 30 '09 at 21:58

This sounds like a browser cache issue.
