Description Stuart Morgan 2005-06-15 09:58:38 PDT
If you click an external link in a gmail message, then navigate to another page
in the new window (using bookmarks, following a link, typing a url, etc.), the
page that was originally opened can't be returned to with the back button (the
button is disabled, and if you browse further the window/tab history on the back
button will never show it).  It doesn't even show up in the global history,
either the menu or the listing in the bookmark manager.

1. Open a gmail email with a link in it
2. Click the link
3. Navigate to another page in the new window
4. Try to get back to the previous page through any means

Page is mysteriously missing from history.

Also broken in 10.3.9; haven't tried regressing further back

Reassigning to webkit-unassigned for more exposure.

GMail is Google.

"rediscovered" this bug while exploring + fixing http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12117
I need to take a more seriously look at it now!!

Confirmed nothing "bad" happens in a release build other than the opened link getting left out of global and back/forward history.  That noted, it may be a little while before I get to this one.
