When I start on the start page (about:home), tap on a "top site", finish with that site, and then hit back, I expect to end up back on about:home. Instead, I exit the app.

This kinda works for me. When I go back the page is blank, because we are not sending the message to Java to display the page.

Madhava - Are you sure you did not open the page in a new tab?

This patch uses "pageshow" instead of "load" events. History session does not fire "load" when going back or forward if the page is in BFcache.
