OS: Windows 10

Browser: Google Chrome Version 81.0.4044.129

Extensions: Replicable with no extensions enabled.

Description: If the main stream URL (https://www.giantbomb.com/chat/) gets # postfixed to it (https://www.giantbomb.com/chat/#) after certain actions are taken, the popout chat page (https://www.giantbomb.com/chat/#/popout) is an identical copy of the stream page.

Screenshot:

No Caption Provided

(I have some extensions enabled in the screenshot but have tested this without any of them enabled)

Steps to replicate: Go to https://www.giantbomb.com/chat/ while stream is active. Click on reply button to any user's post. In the chat composition box, cancel the reply by clicking the x next to a user's name. This appends # to the URL, making the URL https://www.giantbomb.com/chat/#. Clicking POPOUT from this screen opens https://www.giantbomb.com/chat/#/popout, which is identical to the main chat page.

This isn't a major bug in the grand scheme of things, but it took me longer than I'd like to admit to figure out why this was happening.
