I am afraid that I cannot reproduce this. I suspect that I misunderstand
what you said - or perhaps it is a browser dependent problem.


Here is my action for IE10 on Windows 7:


Go to the search page and enter "heart", click on search

Get a list of responses, click on the first one "NCIT"

After NCIT heart page loads click back button

See list of responses for "heart" (actually the query is automatically

Search on "lung", click on search button

Get a list of responses and click on the second one

After page logs, click back button

Is see a bunch of "lung" responses (after query is automatically rerun)

Subject: [bioontology-support] search URL not updated when entering new
search term from results page


Using the 'Search all ontologies' search bar at generates a URL like this:


This works fine, and a list of results is displayed at this page. However,
if on this search results page I enter a *new* search term in the search
field, click on a result from this second search to look at it, and then
hit 'back' on the browser to return the results page for my second search
term, instead the page displays the results of the first search I did.
What's happening is that when a new search term is entered into the search
field on the search results page, the URL above doesn't get updated, so
hitting 'back' always goes back to the search results for the first search
term that was entered in the 'Search all ontologies' search field.
