Why doesnt the back arrow use one click for previous page?

more options

After a search on i have a list of names to look at, so i click on one and look at it and decide to go back to the list of names but I click the back arrow and no change until I click it again. So I notice when I right-click the back arrow it shows that two instances of the same page was loaded hence I must click twice on the back arrow to get back to the list page. WHY? this doesn't happen in edge or chrome.

I don't have the same issue. Try Firefox Safe Mode to see if it's an issue with an extension or something along those lines.

I've seen a similar issue with Bing services. In their case, it has something to do with how the website handles user accounts. Bing checks your login information each time you visit a page and then reloads the page. This creates an extra history item. This was only really an issue the first time you searched unless you were logged in.

Are you logged in on this website?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

The problem does not exist on in safe mode. So, I deleted the firefox sync account and removed the only add-on, adblock plus, but the problem persist on
