Odd Firebase Issue - page transition

I have an Ionic v1 app in creator that uses the side menu and firebase. Whenever the Firebase is updated the app transitions to the first page in the creator app, we will call it page one. It transitions to page one from any page in the app. It even happens when I update the database from the Firebase Console if the app is open. I have used Firebase in many other apps and never seen this issue before. I was wondering if anyone has encountered it or knows what may cause it.
