Embedded media writes itself in browser history -> it affects browser back function

Discussion in 'Meta-forum Discussion' started by Lurking-Ninja, Mar 24, 2022.

  1. - I'm on Windows 10 / Chrome updated version.
    - I go to the General Discussion topic
    - enter into the Enemies: New tech demo showcasing Unity's growing humanoid toolsets topic
    - hit the back button

    - expected: I go back to the General Discussion topic
    - what really happens: I go back one on the browser history, but don't change page

    Here is how the history looks like after entering into the topic:

    It is the result of entering into the topic, nothing else.

    If I enter into a topic without embedded media (like Youtube video), then the browser history looks like normal and the back button takes back to the previous page.

  3. Are you guys sure you don't need help with developing online presence? It doesn't seem you're capable of doing anything online on a timely manner. Neither this, nor the problem with the access denied error. They are there for months.
     
  4. FYI: This happens to me again as of today. Embedded media writes itself into the History on Windows 11 and Chrome latest. I have to double-back when trying to go back up from a topic.

    ps: it is highly suspicious that it came back around the same time a year later...

  5. So no solution for this?
     
  6. So I guess you won't fix it this time and from now on we have to repeatedly bash the back button on our mouse in order to go back to the parent topic from any given thread where embedded media was present.

    uBlock Origin and other content blockers seem to fix this problem. Browser-breaking behavior is commonplace online, so such tools are sometimes necessary for users.
