Users must click "Back" twice when using WYSIWYG

After attempting to modify the initIframe() function in the "HTMLArea.prototype.generate" prototype, I've noticed that when the content is written to the iFrame, it essesntially creates a browser history item.

The problem this creates is that if a user that wants to go to the previous page (by hitting "Back" in their browser) they must click "Back" twice. The first click unloads the WYSIWYG data; the second returns to the previous URL.

Does anyone have any ideas for a workaround?

Here's the code:
if (!editor.config.fullPage) {;
var html = "<html>\n";
html += "<head>\n";
if (editor.config.baseURL)
html += '<base href="' + editor.config.baseURL + '" />';
html += "<style>" + editor.config.pageStyle +
" html,body { border: 0px; }</style>\n";
html += "</head>\n";
html += "<body>\n";
html += editor._textArea.value;
html += "</body>\n";
html += "</html>";
} else {

Thanks is advance!

Hi Giskard.

Thanks for posting and welcome to the board!

We have recently dedicated an entire website to htmlArea which has its own forums and I think that if you could post this questions there too, you would have a better chance at getting a great answer.

Not being an expert with JavaScript, I am not exactly sure if there is a way around this. I know that it also happens when you are working with regular frames.

Hopefully between our community and the htmlarea community you should be able to get some help [:)].
