  • select menu and clicking browser back button

    I am trying to write script that allows a user to select a new page using a select menu. But if a user changes mind and clicks Back button. i want a use to see again "Select a New Page" as a first option in the select menu. instead i see the page that was chosen before. in firefox, even when i click Refresh button, the select menu does not go back to its initial format.
    I tried to use the principle that each time window is loaded, the selected Index would be 0. it is not working. Could anyone give me a hint on how to fix this problem?

    my script is below.

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Jump Menu 2</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function new_page() {
    var selectmenu=document.getElementById("states_form").states_select;
    selectmenu.onchange=function new_state() {
    var i=selectmenu.selectedIndex;
    var state=selectmenu.options[i].value;

    var new_page="http://www.50states.com/"+state+".htm";
    location.href=new_page;
    window.onload=function select_reload() {
    i=0;
    }
    }
    }
    window.onload=new_page;
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <form id="states_form">
    <select name="states_select">
    <option value="0"> -- Select a New State--</option>
    <option value="nebraska"> Nebraska</option>
    <option value="texas"> Texas</option>
    <option value="florida">Florida </option>
    <option value="oregon"> Oregon</option>
    <option value="wisconsi"> Wisconsin</option>
    </select>
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>
