Navigating back while editing property value results in replaced frontmatter

The bug seems to result in a complete replacement of all properties with those of another note. Here’s a step-by-step guide to reproduce the issue in a sandbox vault:

  1. Open Note #1 in a new tab and add a property in list format.
  2. Switch to Note #2 in the same tab and add a property in list format.
  3. In Note #2 , right-click on any property value and select Edit.
  4. Now press the hotkey for Navigate Back.
  5. Upon doing so, you’ll be met with an error message: DOMException: Failed to execute 'removeChild' on 'Node': The node to be removed is no longer a child of this node. Perhaps it was moved in a 'blur' event handler?
  6. Go back to Note #1 (you’ll have to use switcher because back shortcut will not work).
  7. You’ll notice that the note’s properties have been replaced with those from Note #2 . You will likely need to restore them using File Recovery.

Thanks
