How do I prevent websites from modifying firefox history?

Posted

When I am on facebook and I click on a link to another website, or when I'm on another website and I click a facebook link, my browser history gets deleted for that tab, so I cannot click back. How do I prevent this from happening? It's bad that websites can do this at all, they obviously shouldn't even have access to my browsing history. Is there a way to disallow this?

This is due to having facebook container. It's basically making a separate instance of firefox connected to facebook so it doesn't have your back-button-history attached to it. If you turn off facebook container this behavior will go away.
