Created attachment 579800 [details]
Screenshot showing Facebook title & icon with non-Facebook page.

Testing Fennec native nightly 20111207 on my Kindle Fire today, I found that after following a link from Facebook (viewed through <https://touch.facebook.com/>) subsequent attempts to return to Facebook, including through bookmark or typing the URL explicitly, would continue to load the linked page instead.

The awesomebar showed Facebook's name and icon, and tapping into it still showed 'https://touch.facebook.com/' as the URL.

Attempting to append a query string (<https://touch.facebook.com/?zzz>) had the same effect: the linked page showed.

Quitting and restarting Firefox hasn't shown the same effect; Facebook loads as Facebook again, so not sure how to reproduce.

May have involved opening things in background tabs.

Link target I saw this on: http://www.trippedmedia.com/2011/12/your-weed-requests-are-now-a-secret/ (snicker snicker, yeah yeah)

(went through an interstitial confirmation page when following original link, but subsequent hits were not showing that)

Haven't seen it in a while, not reproducing it on a quick current check with latest aurora.

Closing out as WORKSFORME unless anybody else sees this happen now. :)
