BUG sometimes editor navigates to another url

Describe the problem/error/question

It’s a bit hard to explain, but sometimes I am in a specific URL, let’s say creating a new workflow or looking at a completed execution… sometimes I notice the page changes and navigates to a random workflow execution, and it shows that execution view/history… I don’t know how or when it happens but in the last few weeks happened a few times… this last time I was editing a workflow and after 20-25 minutes of changes-test-changes-test I lost everything as I didn’t had a chance to save the workflow and suddenly, my page went to an execution

I don’t think it’s related to version 1.16.0 as in the previous one 1.15.0 I had this same issue, and I updated to the latest yesterday.

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 1.16.0
  • Database (default: SQLite): Postgresql
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main): queue
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): docker image + railway

Again it happened a second time editing a workflow, this time hopefully I had saved the progress. It went to a failed execution:

console.log error:

Any ideas? Should I try deleting these failed workflows? Delete them all? Maybe a failed workflow is stuck or smth?

Deleted all failed executions… let’s see if still happens…

It’s still happening, even after deleting the failed executions I still see them If I navigate to executions… but when I click on them “Cannot read properties of null (reading ‘data’)”

Also, I don’t stop seeing these two errors showing up in my editor:


Is my data corrupted?

I noticed the same behavior, also after deleting cache and cookies. After I try to reproduce it then suddely its working :laughing:

Yeah, it’s so annoying if I try to reproduce it and record the screen everything works perfectly. But when I try to do something it trolls me…

I don’t think it’s the data because everything seems to be working fine and I can see everything. The deleted executions that I was still seeing disappeared after a complete browser restart.

So idk what could be the issue… I might try cleaning the whole executions database to 0

Hey @yukyo,

I had this same issue a while back where it would keep flicking but I was never able to track it down as it started working.

Are you using a reverse proxy or something like Cloudflare at all?
