YouTube and a few other sites have issues with the back button

When I try and go back on YouTube, for example, FireFox would refresh the page I am on and if I hit it again it would send me too far back sometimes off the website entirely. What I find strange about this is that this only happens on my desktop PC but not on my Laptop. Both are running the same build of FireFox so I am thinking that there must be something in the settings of one that is causing this. It could also be the way I navigate webpages. On my PC I use a side button on my mouse. However, on my laptop I use the gestures on the trackpad.

If anyone has encountered this issue and know a fix please let me know
