It's pretty obvious that after using it once it becomes a forward
link because the HTTP_REFERER is the page you last came from. And
after using the back-button once, the last page was the 'next'. The
HTTP_REFERER isn't some kind of history-list.
If you realy want to go Back, why not use:
JS: history.back(...);

That way you really use the history-list of the browser. So after
using it once, it's still a Back-button instead of a Forward-button.

Besides that, using the $HTTP_REFERER isn't really something to rely
on. $HTTP_REFERER doesn't always have to be set. In that case you
can't go either Back nor Forward.
