Description

19 years ago
Using win32 build #2000032308
to reproduce:
1.) goto URL logged. (http://www.thesync.com/geeks)
2.) click "play now with streaming MP3". "Save/Pick/More info" dialog should pop up.
3.) Click "more info".
4.) Click "back".
result: "save/pick/more info" dialog box reappears.
expected: should return to original URL. Bowser appears to be following a
litteral URL access historical path, instead of a page load historical path.
Possible this is intentional, but probably not, and is highly annoying.
also recreatable:
at "save/pick/info" dialog
1.) Click cancel
2.) navigate to any other page
3.) click "back".
result: "save/pick/more info"  dialog box appears.
