Details of my config below.
I update to latest when informed one is available.
I have an error that was introduced 2 updates ago.
Current behaviour on all the sites I visit except one is - after viewing a page, accessed by clicking one item from a list of search results, using the back arrow returned me to the search results.
Original behaviour for this one site AND all others was as above.
After last but one upgrade - ON THE PROBELM SITE ONLY, using the back arrow got me to a blank page with a url that included something to do with doubleclick. Using the back arrow again returned me to my search results page.
After the last upgrade - ON THIS SAME PROBLEM SITE, AND ONLY THIS SITE - using the back arrow gets me to a blank page with a url pasted below. Using the back arrow again takes me to a blank page with 'blank page in the url field, using the back arrow for the third time returned me to my search results page.
I did not report the first error, assuming that this would be fixed in due course. Now that the issues is getting worse, I am taking the trouble to report it. This iis NOT a show stopper for me but as its getting worse I suspect you are unaware of it.
The url of an item clicked on in search results (example) - http://search.findmypast.com.au/bna/viewarticle?id=bl%2F0000495%2F18800703%2F065
The url I end up with after using the back button

@elricks Apparently an account is needed to access any of the articles in the search results.
So I can't reproduce your problem.
For what it is worth, regarding the url you are "going back to", doubleclick is an advertising/tracking network so it appears there is "some kind" of tracking being performed by the findmypast site.
No reason to suspect any malicious intent on their behalf though - so don't get worried.
As an immediate workaround, you could try opening the link articles in a new tab using right click context menu, mouse gestures or keyboard short cuts (shift click or ctrl click) as you prefer.
