There seems to be a problem when navigating back into Discourse from an external link.
Steps to reproduce:
- Click an external link (here’s one).
- Navigate back in your browser.
On Chrome on my desktop (
Version 48.0.2564.82 m (64-bit)), this works fine. Discourse takes a second to load, and I end up on the topic page. In Safari on iOS (
9.2.1), however, thinks work differently: Discourse loads surprisingly quickly, and shows the loading spinner. Sometimes, this completes quickly and you see the topic; but most of the time, you get stuck on the spinner until you reload the page. If it works, reloading and trying again seems to reproduce it most of the time. Seems like Safari is a special snowflake here
