OK. So the title wasn't the best... Example: I am running IE8. Say I have a window open on the Yahoo main page. Then I navigate away from it for 10, 20, 50 minutes or several hours. If after that I type Yahoo.com in the adress bar, I will get the page 'unrefreshed' as I last visited it. This example is the easiest to explain but the issue is making my entire browsing experience much more labourious than it seems it should be.* Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks. * I understand that this is a fairly trivial matter and admit completely that I screwed around with the settings on this computer and this could very well be a problem of my own doing.
