Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

How to replicate my problem.

  1. Open a new IE 11 window. Use any accelerator like bing search. After clicking a bing search link link I still have the option to go back to the original opened page.

  2. Close the new tab that the accelerator opened.(you may have to do this a few times or open multiple tabs and close them)

  3. Use the accelerator again on the first tab and click a bing search link. I no longer have the option to go back to the bing search results page.

Expected Results:

You should be able to go back to the first web page that the accelerator opened once a link has been clicked on the new tab.

Actual Results:
