User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140506152807 Steps to reproduce: I went to a page on a website that produced a 404 not found error (broken link probably). I then went 'back'. Actual results: I was taken back to a completely different site I was visiting previously. The site I was visiting was completely lost from the history, and as such I cannot provide more details. Expected results: I should have been taken back to whence I came. Note: it is likely that the error handler on the site caused the back button to miscue, but...
Revert note: the site can't cause the back button to miscue. This is a bug and probably a longstanding one.
Note the 404 error was provided by the website itself, not an ISP or browser default.
I can't reproduce in FF 29.0.1, Win 7 x64. Please provide the link of the page you're testing with. Also please check if the issue occurs using Firefox in safe mode (with your addons disabled): http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+Mode And on a new, empty profile: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Managing-profiles#w_starting-the-profile-manager

I can't repro this myself now either. There is deffo an issue in which a (mis)typed address is lost by a redirect (such that a correction to the typing is impossible and it has to entirely retyped), though that will take some thought to design a solution, and is not the issue raised. Raise a feature request and close this?
There isn't much to request without reliable steps to reproduce or a testcase to demonstrate the problem. Feel free to reopen this bug if you experience this again and try to provide the above details.
