    A few times today (2/12), I've noticed that when clicking on someone's name on Facebook, rather then directing me to their profile page, Safari brings me to a random page that I was on earlier during my internet session.

    For example, I clicked on a persons name and Safari brought me back to the NOAA website (I was checking the weather earlier). The NOAA page wasn't the last page I was on before going to Facebook. It skipped over at least 10 other pages.

    Anyone else experiencing this or know of a fix? Thanks.

    Weird, was happening to me yesteday... BUT, I use google chrome.

    Must be a mac/facebook thing, cuz its happening on all browsers, not just safari.

    The same thing has been happening to me for a month now. I think it happens when the facebook newsfeed gets updated maybe? When it glitches, it always boots me back to my safari top sites page. Please post an update if you guys find a resolution!

    This happens to me sometimes, not with Facebook but with a different forum site; if I click to reply on a new thread it takes me to a page I visited previously. Must be some kind of glitch.
