    Any time I browsing the web and accidentally hit the back button I have to retype to get back to the page I was on!
    I'd really appreciate a forward button since its easy to miss click on the phone.

    I literally spent 10 mins till I was able to type in this box, because the keyboard kept on coming up than hide right away. Not sure why....
    Very anoying!!!

    In IE:

    Menu > Recent

    Can be used to go both forwards and backwards.

    Same thing happens when I browse WPCentral on my 920.

    Thx for that solution!
    Even tho it would be addressed a lot easier if there where a simple back/forward buttons In mmy opinion..
    I mean if they want to be unique plz do it in a userfriendly fashion...

    go to a page
    Add it to favourites but then edit the details to
    ! Forward
    for name the ! ensures it is at the top of the list
    and for the url put
    javascript:history.forward()
    then save and then to go forward you just have to go to your favourites list and press it

    These javascript shortcuts only seem to work while you remain in that instance of the IE browsing session. If you press the Start button or if you press the dedicated Back button multiple times (until you switch to another app or land on the start screen) these shortcuts will not work when you return to IE. At least that is my experience on a Lumia 920, but I suppose this is an OS-level limitation.

    For me the most annoying thing with IE10 is the lack of possibility to set the start page...

    You can open the desired page that you wish to been opened on startup and leave it in one tab.Then just open another one for browsing and when you are finished just open tabs and close all off them just leaving the one you like to be opened next time.

    P.S. I know its a stupid way but what can we do when someone up there is reading all of this complains from us users and its not taking any actions.

    I found another way, which is to go to the website You want to have as the start page, then select "pin to start screen" option.
    Then You'll get nice small miniature tile of that page which You can use to start IE. This way I got Google as the start website of my IE.
