I usually disable the back button in model admin because it doens't always work. However a client has seen this and is very keen to keep it (they have also noticed it doesn't always work). Is there a known patch for this or any information someone could favour me with to get it consistently working please?

hey Barry, SS3 uses HTML pushState for this, in ModelAdmin and other sections.
The back button in the UI in this case is the same as the back button on the browser,
both know how to partially load an UI via Ajax. That's been rewritten from scratch,
so not portable to 2.4/2.5 without massive effort unfortunately.
