You can't disable the Back button completely as "Alt+LeftArrow" does the
same thing.

Use "window.open()" -- there's no going back!

Search Google's "Groups" for "disable Back button"; it's been asked before!

If you're talking about a back button on your page add DISABLED to the
HTML element.

If you're talking about the back button on the application toolbar:

DO NOT disable my back button!!!!!!!

That goes on the list of unexceptable programming behavior right below
pop-ups and resizing the browser.

Above (if it was possible)! Usability studies have shown the back
button to be the *second* *most* *used* navigation method in a browser
(the most used being clicking on a link). So if someone disables the
back button, he interferes with one of the things the user depends on
the most.

I prefer the visible, although obnoxious, popups and resizings. They are
easily recognizable, and I can leave immediately (and most of them are
blocked by my browser anyway).
