In Yliaavanlampi (edit: and also in Vaarainjärvi), when you tap a link that opens in a new tab, in that new tab it is possible to ”go back” to a blank page with the back button.

I think the correct behaviour in a newly opened tab would be either that

  1. the back button is disabled, or
  2. tapping the back button closes the tab (as requested here).

Note that this only happens with a link that is defined as opening in a new window/tab, not when you long-press a link and select ”open in new tab”.

I saw that already in U10, and can confirm that it is still present.

More intuitive is close current tab if back is nothing, and switch to first of previous tabs. Or better solution not show/allow back arrow.
