What has happened to the redirect tool?

I rely on the Redirect Tool a lot, especially for the purpose of making my Canvas Pages be part of the left-hand navigation inside Canvas itself.


Now the Redirect Tool is showing a new behavior that is making this very frustrating: if I click on a menu item that I created with the redirect tool, instead of it seamlessly going to the designated Page, it displays a Redirect button that the students must press.


This was not the behavior in the past.


Here is an example. In my Myth Course, there is a Page which has the students' blogs in a stream, and I have that Page in the menu using the Redirect Tool:

Daily Announcements: MLLL-3043 Myth-Folklore - Spring 2018 


This is extremely frustrating. Has something happened?


Can it be fixed?


Nobody wants to stare at a screen like this when they are trying to navigate through a course site. When students click on a button, they should be able to go to there. It's just a Page in my own Canvas course!
