Intermittent bug: Using [Back] to get to you/?show=COMMENTS reidrects to you/settings Answered

For the past several weeks I've been having a weird and intermittent bug with my COMMENTS page.

I have bookmarked the now requisite ...you/?show=COMMENTS URL so that I can get to my inbound comments directly.

I usually put this up in a separate tab and use [Back] and [Reload] to navigate to individual comments then back to my list. Every once in a while (few days) instead of returning to my comments list, I get .../you/settings displayed instead! I didn't ask for my settings, I don't want my settings, and I can't get out of them! Reload doesn't do anything to change this.

The only "solution" is for me to open a new tab, open the .../you/?show=COMMENTS URL again, and delete the weird tab so it doesn't confuse me.

It seems like either in the page's JavaScript, or maybe on the server side, there's a redirection glitch of some kind. Sorry I can't provide more details, and with this low-rate incidence, it might not even be findable.

Hey Kelsey, I'm unable to reproduce the bug locally. Can you keep us updated if it happens again for you? If we can reproduce it, we can try to fix it.

Hi, Noah. It's happening again, very frequently today. The most recent time, I had to reload six times before it came back to COMMENTS.

Thanks, Noah. It does keep happening for me. A few times just today. One thing I noticed is that if I do multiple reloads, after the second or third in a row the page comes back to COMMENTS. It's really weird, and may not be something you'll reproduce except by accident.

I just leave it & reload, or open a new tab. (not seen this) L
