How can I make Safari stop asking if I want to send the search info again after I hit the back button to go back the the search results when I just read one of the said results.

Other browsers are not doing it and are going back to the search results without performing the search again ....

Please help here!

You can't, it's just the way Safari handles pages like that for whatever reason...some other browers are the same...

Your best bet is to open the links off a "Search Page" in a new tab, allowing you to keep the initial search page open...

Thanks a lot for the tip, however, it is not true that other browsers are the same, if I make a search on MacNN with Camino I can go back to the search results without the hassle, just give it a try.

Thanks again.

Try OmniWeb (and I believe Opera/iCab)...

Send your complaint to Apple. If enough people complain maybe they will fix the problem.

This seems a cache issue with Safari.
