Previous page loads for a second, and then the page skips back one page further. Forward button works without a problem. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. unable to reproduce consistently -- have not noticed any pattern. 2. 3. Expected Results: back button should navigate back one page at a time.
I've seen this behavior in both 4.x and 5.0.x. Facebook is a one site where this behavior is prevalent. I have seen this on a few other sites as well, but it's very infrequent on those so I have not noted which sites they are. Easily reproduced: 1: Log onto Facebook. 2: Navigate to ahead by clicking on any link that takes you to another page within Facebook site. 3: Press the back button and it will take you back to the previous page for about 1 second, then it will continue back to the page prior to that. Sometimes, it happens so fast you cannot see the page it should be going back to. Firefox Version: 5.0.1 User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:5.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0.1
