I searched Microsoft forum and opened the first link (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us). On Firefox, Go back one page (back arrow) button was not working on this website.

The location changes three times so you have to press the back button three times or right-click it and choose the fourth item from the top.

I tried Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, no such issue with that website.

Not a browser issue. If you look at what 1 click back is you should understand. see screenshot

It also doesn't happen in Waterfox. see screenshot There is no redirect in Waterfox. Looks like a job for Dev to explain the differences between the browsers, but not an issue.

I also notice that the redirect goes away once you hold down the back arrow to skip the redirect and go back to the google search. Then click on the Microsoft forum and then click back once to get to google.

To replicate, clear cache and history and then you'll see the redirect that takes you back to MS forum. Again, after clicking back to google redirect is no more. I would blame whoever generates that redirect (MS) that seems to only affect Firefox.  ;-))

How do you see redirecting on Firefox?

You can hold down the left mouse button on either Back/Forward button or right-click to open the tab history drop-down list.

Some extensions also can cause a redirect to appear.

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

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

Just click and hold the back arrow. If you don't see it, just clear cache and history and try again.

Still see the redirect with browser in Safe Mode. I was wrong, the redirect also shows in Waterfox

After hitting the back arrow and then immediately hitting the ESC to stop the process, you can see that it goes through some kind of MS login like process before going back to the forum page. see screenshot

I see the same thing in Safari. see screenshot Which why resetting Firefox will not fix your issue. I'm going to get on Windows and I bet I can reproduce it in all browsers. Not a browser issue.

I see the same thing in Edge. Not sure what you're looking at, but all you have to do is click the back arrow, but don't let go and you'll see it. I'm done with this non issue. Good Luck
