Package: chromium
Version: 25.0.1364.160-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I wrote my own microblog, which outputs a static HTML site from files in a Git repository using the Bourne Shell and DJB redo. Then I did the following things:

1. Visit the home page of the blog <http://news.dieweltistgarnichtso.net/>
2. Go to the page for the first entry (link is the date string).
3. Activate the back button.

While the URL changed, no redraw occured. I expected the back button to not only change the URL but also redraw the previously visited page.

Further testing gave that the expected behaviour occurs when the first page is scrolled down a bit before navigating to the second page and navigating back.

A workaround is to activate the reload button.
