  1. how do i get the back button to go back to the previous part of the page and
    not to the beginning of the page... say like on ebay and I looked at an item
    and then want to just hit back and go badk to that last spot where I left
    off... right now it goes to the beginning of the last page?

  2. By doing it that way you leave it mostly up to the site about
    what you will see. When you know that you want to see exactly
    the same thing again, the most effective technique is to open
    a link in a new tab or new window, e.g. press Ctrl- or Shift-
    when clicking on a link. Then you have several ways to "go back"
    and need not lose any positioning information for the previous
    view at all.
