Re: window.history.back() not working in blackberry Torch 9800

Are you referring to Web content rendered in the browser or from within a WebWorks application.  I am aware of a known issue with the underlying BrowserField object used by the WebWorks framework.  The history mechanism is disconnected, and so a call to window.history.back() made from within a WebWorks app will not invoke an event.
