Of course! We've known for over three years that Opera is much faster than Mozilla at rendering a page when you click the Back button, and we've had good ideas about why that is. Just take a look at bug 38486 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38486> Please don't spam that bug with useless comments as a certain Bugzilla user has rudely done, however.
