Have you tested the behaviour with another browsers? Could it be IE that is causing the issue, as I've tested with multiple browsers and no such problem was caused. Also, in the pages structure - where exactly is your home page located? Is there a chance that you could open a support ticket and send me the credentials for your backend, so I can get a better picture of your whole structure and try to reproduce the issue on my local project, as well, or just try to reproduce it on a blank project and send me the exact steps? Thanks in advance.
