Navigating back & pdf conflict

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open a pdf inside the app via a link
  2. Try to naviagte back via the hotkey (i have mine set to ⌘ <-

Expected result

I expect it to naviagte back

Actual result

Nothing. I have to click on a file in the file directory or backlink sidebars to naviagte. Once I return to the pdf it works, but it’s that FIRST time I open the pdf that it gets stuck.
