Searching the glossaries - am I doing it right?

When I use the "Search Glossaries" page to see if a term has been previously discussed, the system comes up (if I'm lucky) with a number of answers. I probably want to click on several of these to see the full details. After I've been to the details of the first one, I therefore use the back button, hoping that I'll be returned to the initial list of answers and be able to view their details - but at this point the browser comes up with the "This page cannot be displayed" page, and I have to repeat the whole enquiry again simply to get back to the list of answers which I originally had. It gets very time-consuming to view the details of half a dozen translations of the same term. Is there something wrong with the way I'm doing this, or a better technique that would let me view all the details more quickly?

The same thing happens to me Aug 1, 2004

It seems to be a fairly recent occurrence -- VERY annoying!

The "page has expired" message comes up much more frequently than before, but usually, after hitting the back button again, I get to where I wanted to be, except in the gloss search.

Open link in new window Aug 1, 2004

Hi Armorel and Trudy,
Why don't you right-click on the link and use Open in new window? In this way you can keep the list.

HTH, Ralf

One more suggestion Aug 2, 2004

How about making the opening of a new window a default setting? This facility exists in forum postings. If some other thread's url is given as hyperlink and one clicks on that, a new window opens. In Google too there is provision in the options for making this functionality of opening a new window into a default setting. It should be technically possible, I am sure.

Regards,
N.Raghavan

Thanks Ralf Aug 2, 2004

Thanks for pointing out the "open in new window" option - of course that does just what is required and I shall now happily do that!
