Steps to reproduce

When I use history.back() or window.history.go(-1) twice on EDGE browser, I go back and forward instead of going back twice.

  • In other browsers it works fine.

  • I have not been able to repro this on my end using the latest public stable build - can you provide step by step instructions so I can be sure I am following the repro exactly as described?

    On my test I followed these steps:
    1.) Went to bing.com
    2.) Clicked on an article on the bottom of the page.
    3.) From there I clicked on an article
    4.) Opened the dev console and then input window.history.go(-1) and pressed enter
    5.) Entered the exact same command and hit enter again and the browser just goes back one more page

  • Sorry I didn’t give enough details before. The strange behaviour occurs when I use the History back() Method in my page this way:


    If I remove ' href="#" ' it works fine, but I loose the hiperlink aspect. Please see the attached file I just added.
    Thank you.
