Section 188.8.131.52  says:
> The popstate event is fired when navigating to a session history entry that represents a state object.
In contrast, section 6.5.9  indicates in step 10 that a popstate
event is fired if the history entry represents a state object or the
first entry for a document.
Unfortunately this ambiguity has caused WebKit and Mozilla to
implement popstate in two different ways .
I think we can resolve this in the spec by changing the line from 184.108.40.206 to:
> The popstate event is fired when navigating to a session history entry.
