If you have are viewing a valid site, and then type in a bogus url like http://www.alskdjflaskd.com/, the DNS lookup will fail, but the site will be added to your session history. This means that if you hit back, it appears to do nothing, because it goes "back" from the nonexistant site, to the site you were looking at, which is still on scree en.
Chris, is this you or someone else?
Looks like almost a DUP of bug 11325, "bad URLs added to browser history", ASSIGNED, M15 - the difference being that that bug is about the global history and this one is about the session history. This bug also seems responsible for "empty" entries on the Go menu.
Summary: nonexistant sites should not be added to history → nonexistant sites should not be added to session history SH
lets be sure and keep these separated for now. with the new changes to come I think SH and global will be handled differently.

wanna reel in the milestone here? similar and related bug 11325 is M15 (and rightly so)
*** Bug 31496 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This should be fixed.
