When I use Bookmarks -> View Pocket List, it arbitrarily decides to take over my current tab (which is annoying), and if I'm logged in when I do this, the browser Back button no longer takes me back. It looks like the address bar flickers slightly when I try, but I can't tell if this is a Pocket website bug or a Firefox-Pocket integration bug. Nightly 2017-08-15, no addons.

This is a pocket bug. It will be using history.pushState() or a hash change, thus creating a new history entry, even though nothing is actually happening on the page. You can workaround by long-clicking or right-clicking the back button and selecting an earlier entry. Nate, can you forward this to someone who can fix this in the pocket website?
