I think that it works as expected.
You were looking at the inline-inline display for that album, but you were still in the "Composers" view (EntireLibrary>Composers on the navigation bar) so one step back is EntireLibrary>Artists as expected.
I understand what you are saying, but I do think that in order to "expect" all aspects of MM back navigation, you have to have to have read and understood the program source code. ... otherwise not everything is as expected IMO
ie. the back button action for these two screens is different https://www.dropbox.com/s/9r7gwfnz0lxtp ... n.png?dl=0
I know that you can explain why, but as a user it not intuitive IMO
Also it is probably not expected that the first lnline display records a breadcrumb for backbutton, but the 2nd inline display does not appear to
ie. click the album title in the 1st level of inline window (as shown here), and the backbutton will take you back to this inline display ... all good, all as expected
from here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ayhbf8ttkis61 ... e.png?dl=0
But if I am in the 2nd level of inline display, and do the same thing ... the back button takes me back to the upper level inline panel, not where I can from
https://www.dropbox.com/s/22rtm78d2rve3 ... e.png?dl=0
And it very UNexpected (IMO) that if I am at the position shown below (ie. I have selected a specific Composer, and you are showing their inline window) ... and I change the View from Grid to Albums&Tracks (or List) .. and you show me EntireLibrary>Composers(168) ... I would have expected something that looked more like EntireLibrary>Composers(1)>Bela Bartol
from here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wnc7gvk6c5xil ... d.png?dl=0
ie. like this

And to cap it off, when I then get confused and use the backbutton, you send me off to somewhere surprising (eg. off to somewhere EntireLibrary>AlbumArtists, where I was yesterday, or hours ago)
IMO it would be better if the backbutton steps back one step at a time, not the large jumps that it can do at the moment. ... ie. each press of the back button takes me one step back ... closes the opening an inline window or removes the filter I set, etc etc
I think that this would be easier to understand from a user perspective.
I suppose that MM5 is following MM4, but I never understood MM4 back navigation either.
try this disorientation
the backbutton seems to interfer with the looking magnifying glass toggle action
EntireLibrary>Composer .... type something to filter to a composer ... ie. I type bela ... I go to EntireLibrary>Composers(1) ... which is good ... a click on the magnify glass (top right corner, not the one in the breadcrumbs) ... this unfilters the display, which is good
But if start the same way: ntireLibrary>Composer .... type something to filter to a composer ... ie. I type bela ... and go to EntireLibrary>Composers(1) as before .... and then use the back button, and get surprised by being taken to somewhere like EntireLibrary>AlbumArtists ... so I use tool bar forward button (or alt+right) ... and I am back ok ... but the magnify glass toggle is now broken ... ie. it takes me from EntireLibrary>Composers(1)>bela not to EntireLibary>Composers(168), but to EntireLibrary>Composers(1) ... and now I am locked into an invisible filter
filter syntax not working in Composer sub node ... I can filter with string "bela", but not "composer:bela", as I can in AllTracks
so if I filter to "bela" in EntireLibrary in Grid view, and then change view to Album&Tracks ... I also get Bela Flac (ie. the artist), so i then need to change filter string 'composer:bela' which was invalid in the Composer sub-node
And there is not tooltip on the back button to show alt+left and the backspace keyboard short cuts or the forward button
