Hi,

I wanted to let you know that the "back" key command (holding command and left arrow) normally directs my browser to the last page I was on. However, on your website, it instead causes the "dirtbag deal" ads to flip to the next ad. This is annoying because first I'm confused about why my command doesn't work, and then I have to use the mouse to hit the back button on my browser instead of the handier and rather ingrained key command.

I've never had this problem on any other website. I love your site and don't mind the ads, but this is getting aggravating. Any chance of a fix?

Thanks!
Emily

This deeply concerns me. I like pan-internet normalcy, particularly in shortcuts. However, Macs now have multitouch gestures, so I'm set.

Maybe someone will write a Firefox add on for ya. I hope you can sleep tonight with all the aggravation. Much sending to be done tomorrow.
