This started about a month ago, and is increasing in frequency, now several times a day. I click on a link, and my screen just flickers, but remains where I was. If I click on History, I see the link at the top that I just clicked, so my browser went there, but apparently, immediately after going there, my browser acted as if I had hit the back button. (Firefox 25.0.1, Windows Vista)

Any idea where this phantom back-button is coming from? It's not a serious problem, I can just hit history and get to where I want to be, but some sites are impossible to restore from history, like Google maps, once you leave a page, you have to back to the start page. By the way, it seems to happen in this C-D forum more than anywhere else.

Since it happens only sporadically, it doesn't sound like window_flip is the issue. It's set on True.
