Description

5 years ago
Build ID: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:30.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/30.0

Some websites requires the back button to be clicked twice to go back to the previous page. See http://www.dn.se or http://www.gamespot.com

Steps to reproduce:
1. go to http://www.gamespot.com
2. click on any link 
3. click back button

Actual results:
Clicking the back button did not go to previous page. Clicking it again will do this.

Expected results:
It should be enough to click the back button only once to go back to previous page

Note that this works fine in Safari and Chrome. Turning of JavaScript in Firefox will also solve the issue.
