Opera 7 and the address bar
is there a bug here?

 5:16 am on Jun 4, 2003 (gmt 0)

Is anyone else seeing this in Opera 7.11 -- sometimes when I use the Forward and Back functions, the address bar does not change the URL. And sometimes it does.

I can't zero in on how to reproduce this, or exactly what conditions make it happen. But it has already resulted in several errors for me, recording or emailing a wrong address. Is it just me?

OK, a bit more playing with this and now I have a clue.

I keep my Google preferences set to open a click in a new window. If I click on several different results, the target pages re-use the same window.

Now in that window, if I use forward or back, the URL doesn't change. However, if I use that window itself to navigate to just one more page, then the address bar returns to proper functioning on all previous pages. So it looks like the bug is connected to target="_blank"
