@Cnherrick press and hold the back button, it will open up a list. If websites have redirected, then you hitting back just once will only back you up to the redirect link, which then puts you back forward. It’s annoying, but is how the internet works despite the browser. (happens on desktop as well for some websites)

That said, this shouldn’t be a frequent issue.

Excellent! This works for me. I now use it every time.
