    Launching webhelp appears to 'break' the IE Back button

    Help_searcher

      We are just about to launch a new Flex application with webhelp written in RoboHelp 7.  However, one of the outstanding bugs is that launching the context sensitive help appears to break the browser back button (Internet Explorer).

       

      If you start the application and use it without opening Help, then the browser back button works prefectly. If you click on the Help button and display Help in a new window, use Help and then close the Help window and return to the application, then the next time you click Back the Help window is relaunched. The programmers appear to have implemented the calls to launch help using the RoboHelp JavaScript file as described in the RoboHelp Help files.

       

      Please does anyone have any ideas about how to avoid this issue? otherwise we're stuck with trying to rewrite the JavaScript.
