Attached file logcat of issue
If user has a special theme colored website such as as their pinned website, navigating to another website via the forward button could cause browser to show wrong theme color.

1) Pin a special colored website to Home screen (I used which has purple colored theme)
2) Kill all current windows
3) Open the pinned website at step 1
4) Tap on search bar twice and access on existing window
5) Once google is loaded, press back arrow button
6) On, tap search bar once, and press the forward arrow button

Expected: Google website is accessed showing white browser skin

Actual: Google website is access showing black browser skin

This issue does not occur for non-pinned websites

Repro rate: 5/5

Video showing from step 3 onwards:

Also attaching a logcat.

Not checking 2.2 since the ability to pin a website is not available on it.
