IE 11 back button reloads same page (Bugs)

I can do it every time.

1. choose page 3 from drop down
2. click thread Vorschlag zu Kategorien
3. click "back to the forum index"
4. choose page 5 from drop down
5. click IE back button, page 5 reloads

Ok, now I can confirm the described behaviour. I did not click the link "back to forum index" in my first test but used the browsers back button. By the way, with a second click onto the back button (step 6) the browser loads page three.

I can reproduce a similar behaviour in Firefox 65.

1. choose page 3 from drop down
2. click thread "Vorschlag zu Kategorien"
3. click "back to the forum index"
4. choose page 5 from drop down
5. click firefox's back button, loads page 3
6. click thread "Vorschlag zu Kategorien" again
7. click "back to the forum index" again
8. click firefox's back button, page 5 reloads

It seem to depend on the fact, that the drop down loads the pages with a URL parameter (i.e. page=3) but with the click on the posting link the URL get lost of the parameter. The information about the selected page now only exist in the server session. After clicking the browsers back button the information about the selected page differs from the reality. IMHO this is not simple to solve completely because there have to be several edge cases taken into consideration.

Tschö, Auge
