Backspace 4 times to return to last page viewed
in my hosts file results in having to hit my back button 4 times before I return to the previous page.
Now that's request persistence!When those who believe in any of the available gods understand why they deny all other gods, they should come to understand why atheists lack a belief in theirs.

Well, there seems to be a solution by your own admission. Remove the DNS hack.
Content filtering via manual DNS is a very poor choice, as you are breaking DNS and could be causing all types of HTML rendering problems depending upon how a site formats content.
If you have a problem looking at ads for some reason, which BTW pay our rather expensive hosting bills (multiple servers, bandwidth, support, contracts, etc.), then you could try using a HTTP content filter proxy or similar dedicated filtering solution.Robert Richmond | Infinite perceptions.

I could remove the sticker on my snail mail box saying "Stop all un-addressed ad mail and flyers from being delivered to this mail box" but since the post office was required to offer an opt out, I won't. Of course Canada post relies on the un-addressed mail for a portion of their revenue but I decide when Iíll be a consumer thanks.Content filtering via manual DNS is a very poor choice
The only problems I've had are with news videos on yahoo or Google news. Can't block the adverts without blocking the news videos that I some times want to view. Personally I have no use for adverts, spam or sales people that won't leave you alone while shopping. The persistence of pagead2 is quite unnecessary.
I'll wait for a related fix to take care of the problem just like last time.
Itís no biggy on this end. Just thought I would mention another symptom of the new coding. There werenít any problems on my end before the change.
Thanks for the reply.When those who believe in any of the available gods understand why they deny all other gods, they should come to understand why atheists lack a belief in theirs.
