User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:99.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/99.0
Steps to reproduce:
OS: Void Linux
- Firefox open and used for hours
- I left the house for a few hours
- Came back (my PC was asleep, so I woke it up, but Firefox was still running and not closed)
- I continued to use Firefox for a bit
- I opened youtube, searched, click on a video (currently that window history should be - about:blank, youtube.com, some video)
- I closed that window
- A few seconds later a pressed Ctrl+Shift+N to open the recently closed window
- Pressing back button or mouse back seems to 'refresh' the page and does not go back to youtube.com, but is stuck on the video
I don't think the "open closed window" has anything to do with this because I have had this happen for a while like this issue and my dupe. Sometimes a page refresh/F5 will allow back to work, sometimes not. Not sold on sleep mattering either but other issues I've seen mentioned they thought sleep may be involved.
Maybe something else to note? Most likely just extra info. When I open a new window I use my window manager's hotkeys, which runs
firefox-bin, not Ctrl+N. Not sure if there's some weirdness in that.
Dont have the video I clicked on, but it has happened on multiple sites

tldr - press back
page 'refreshes' (as if it is loaded instead of the actual previous page)
Reloading the page or pressing F5, or going forward and then back again MAY allow for back to work as expected
Page goes back to proper page in history.
