Lost the "back" button on Safari.
Anyone else have this problem? I am running a 3GS on the latest software upgrade (I forget which version). If I open a webpage on Safari and then navigate to a different one, I don't have a "back" button to go back to the previous page. The left arrow is visible at the bottom of the screen, but it is grayed out -- I can't click on it. Anyone ever have this problem or have a fix?

No, it's not new tabs. It's in the same tab -- the back button just isn't there when I go to a new page. It's as if Safari is forgetting my history when I go from page to page.
Glad to hear someone else had the same problem, jcampbell, although I'd prefer not to have to restore my phone as new and lose all my contacts, settings, etc. Was hoping for a better solution. Anyone? Bueller?

try removing your cache and doing a soft reset. which is holding down home/power til the apple logo comes back on (usually about 8-10 seconds).
This removes any applications running in background. if that doesnt help, it might be a issue with your safari. try going and asking at the genius bar..

does this happen randomly or always on the same site?
if the latter, could you post the specific site?
