From the main meta site, I clicked on the question "How to export my favorite questions on stack-exchange as pdf? [duplicate]" and it immediately opened "Save the answer in PDF?". This is the first time this ever happened to me. (Usually it goes to the question I clicked, not to its duplicate.)
I thought this was a new "feature," so I tried it again. On the main meta page, I clicked "Changes in Mathematics Stack Exchange? [duplicate]", expecting to be immediately redirected to "Updates to the site". But it went to the question I clicked, not to its duplicate.
I then noticed that I was not logged in to site. After I logged in, whenever I click a question on the main meta site, I am no longer automatically redirected to the duplicate.
My question is: while I was logged out of the site, why did clicking one question redirect to its duplicate, while clicking on another question did not redirect to its duplicate?
