Is there is any method to avoid the POST Data warning while clicking on the 'back' button of the browser?

If you post to the same page, then yes you can. Posted data is actually a PART OF the page that it was posted to, so if you use header redirection to redirect back to the same page, the user will still be there but without the posted data. And, if you've used header redirection before, you know that it actually replaces the current page, so the back button wouldn't take them back to it.

I understand the security behind the POSTDATA warning.

However, in my IT environment, we're all working on servers that are internal. Every time I hit the back button, it takes me to where I want to go after I click OK to that really really annoying warning. Every day. All day.

It's going to be really sad if I code something to look for that image and induce an ENTER keypress automatically.

I'd much rather just have firefox show an option: SUPPRESS WARNINGS YEAH I KNOW ITS INSECURE I DONT CARE I HIT ENTER TO THEM ALL AND PROCEED.

This keeps turning into a "No really, we know better than you" issue, and I'd like to be the first to point out that no, you don't. Because in MY situation it is secure.

But until that feature gets added ... I guess I'll have to start forcing it myself.
