When a user navigates through multiple webpages in one window and then attempts to transition away from their current window to another, and then return to their previous window, they may observe that their window will load the screen of a previously viewed webpage (the initial entry point) before loading in to the actual webpage that window holds.
For Readability:
** W1 for window 1
** W2 for window 2 
Repro Steps:
1) Update a Flame device to BuildID: 20150106010234
