Hey there,

I use Opera 9.21 and for as long as i can remember have had the problem of needing to push the back button multiple times; but only on this website when wanting to go back one page..  Had a quich search and couldnt see it mentioned anywhere else.  It is not a big deal, was just wandering if anyone knows why it occurs or if they have the same problem?

I have the same issue on Opera 9.24 on Ubuntu 6.06 - having to hit the back several times makes the mouse gestures less useful, and I often end up going back to Firefox.

It's something to do with the iframe for the google ads.

Occasionally I've seen one browser or another (don't take much notice if I'm in opera or ff) actually get itself caught in a recursion with that iframe, like mirror in a mirror effect.  Doesn't do much for the performance ;-)
