Whenever a user hits the back button in Google Chrome, if the previous page was password protected - it asks the user to login again even though they already are. Refreshing the page does display the protected content, but this is not a great experience.

Anyone else experiencing anything similar with the last couple Chrome releases?

    I would say this is the expected behavior. The back button should take you back one step in your history. It should show you what you were looking at. If it did a refresh, the content might be different to what you were seeing. – Jason Varga Apr 12 '13 at 2:58

Are you talking about a member login area in the front-end templates or in the control panel? I'm using the latest version of Chrome and I don't have that problem with either.

It sounds like a session or cookie problem. In Admin > Security & Privacy > Security & Sessions, what do you have your Control Panel Session and User Session set to?
