I encountered a funny little bug, when pressing the famous Show More button in questions lists - in certain cases it results in repeating the first page, instead of producing the next batch of results.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Navigate to

2. Click on your profile picture to open the context menu (for example, you wish to open activities in a new tab).

3. The url changes to

4. Click on your profile picture again to close the menu.

5. Press 'Show More'.

This results in the first page of items displayed instead of getting the next set of questions. Each subsequent press of Show More results in appending the first page over and over.

The bug is reproducible for any page with 'Questions tagged', Coffee Corner discussion list and answers list (

The easiest way to solve this, is to clear the # character manually and refresh the page or apply a valid filter (for example , which also leads to reloading the page).

Another possible way to encounter this parasitic # at the end, is if you mis-click and select sort by relevance from the filter drop-down.

Tested in Firefox ESR 52.1.2, Firefox 53.0.3, Google Chrome Portable 58.0.3029.110 and IE11.

This should be fairly easy to reproduce and solve.
