In Chrome, the "Advanced data filters" accumulate duplicate entries


To reproduce:

  1. Click "Browse All data".

  2. Click "Advanced data filters".

  3. Search for a patient by external ID, referer, owner, last author, or phenotype.

  4. Click on the patient.

  5. Click the web browser's Back button.

Expected results: The search page exactly as I left it.

Actual results: The search criteria now appear twice. When searching by phenotype this is not so bad, but when searching by external ID, referrer, owner, or last author, the duplication of criteria leads to empty search results.

This problem happens in Chrome but not Firefox.

Part of the problem seems to be that there are two external ID fields. When I type into the "By external identifier" field at the top of the page, then click on one of the patients in the results, then click Back, what I typed into "By external identifier" has been copied into "Report name" at the bottom of the page. I have to manually clear the "Report name" textbox before changing "By external identifier", or there will be two mutually exclusive external ID filters.

Instead of clicking a patient and clicking the Back button, you can also see this bug by simply clicking Refresh.

Thanks. Yeah, if you use the Refresh button you will see the problem consistently on all browsers.
