It’s a Discourse bug I should try and do something about it in their bug forum but I dont know the Discourse universe well yet and so I write it here to remember it until then and to also to point out a bug that I only notice in MB’s Discourse at the moment.
This problem occurs with my out‐dated Windows Opera 12.18 (I know I am not the very last user though, we are at least 10 throughout the world).
Global history bug
When browsing Discourse, the browser history (manipulated with
history.replaceState) only shows null labelled history items (with the correct URL though).
I could reproduce it in their sandbox.
MB Discourse only bug
There is another glitch though, that I could not reproduce in their sandbox and that is only here in MB’s Discourse, at least for the little tests I made.
If I follow an external link, no history state is saved of the MB Discourse page I’m leaving.
So I can’t use my browser’s Back feature to go back to the conversation I was reading.
Other than that I’m very surprised how well Discourse works in Opera 12.x.
For such a modern site in such an old browser, it’s flawless.
