HTMLIFrameElement.goBack()

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The goBack() method of the HTMLIFrameElement interface is used to navigate backwards in the browser <iframe>'s history.

By calling this method, the browser <iframe> changes its location for the previous location available in its navigation history, which sends a series of related events: mozbrowserlocationchange, mozbrowserloadstart, and so on.
