In my website, I have links into Faithlife for bible verses the user selects.

For links into the books of the Apocrypha, the link works to open it and I see the text, but if I reload the page with a new reference, as soon as the Faithlife Study Bible loads on the right, since it can't match the reference, it replaces the location of the left side and reloads the left side again.

It seems to not happen the first time loading the page, but happens for any successive attempt.

So for example:

https://bible.faithlife.com/books/rsvce/Tob8.4

If you go there, and then in your browser address bar change the verse from 4 to 5 and press enter to reload, it will reload both sides. The left side finishes first showing Tobit. Then when the right side is done loading, the left side will get auto-updated to the reference on the right side, which for me currently keeps using Rev 17:1

This also happens in the other books, here are some random verses as examples:

https://bible.faithlife.com/books/rsvce/Jdt5.5

https://bible.faithlife.com/books/rsvce/1Mac10.10

https://bible.faithlife.com/books/rsvce/2Mac15.20

https://bible.faithlife.com/books/rsvce/Wis3.3

https://bible.faithlife.com/books/rsvce/Sir40.20

https://bible.faithlife.com/books/rsvce/Bar2.2

Just shift-clicking on each of the links I posted above causes it to happen, after the first one stayed in place.

Happening also for me, quite annoying..

It does not however seem to be happening for me using biblia.com so perhaps you can try that.

https://biblia.com/books/rsvce/Tob8.4

https://biblia.com/books/rsvce/Jdt5.5

https://biblia.com/books/rsvce/1Mac10.10

https://biblia.com/books/rsvce/2Mac15.20

https://biblia.com/books/rsvce/Wis3.3

https://biblia.com/books/rsvce/Sir40.20

https://biblia.com/books/rsvce/Bar2.2

biblia.com was the older domain, however https://community.logos.com/forums/t/185956.aspx advises it had a refresh in the last 2 years so perhaps focus is on that now rather than bible.faithlife.com, which still references the now 3+ year old transition of Vyrso to ebooks.faithlife.com (https://community.logos.com/forums/t/158725.aspx)

You rock! Thanks again Kevin!

I'll switch my site's links to Biblia for those books.
