....over the last few months and a problem has shown up and if anything it is getting worse. I wonder if it is an issue I suffer alone from or if it is something that people are already are aware of/there is a solution out there for it.

When I am on a diary page, any diary...be it on the front page... a side-bar recent diary, or a diary I found via comments, that when I press the back arrow on Chrome it seems to take 10-20 times for it to work... and it needs to be done with the cursor in a very sweet spot or it will not work at all.

    Thanks for reporting the issue, which is one that has been reported before. I'll check the status since it's not coming immediately to mind.

    I have the same problem in Chrome. Also, I want to get rid of the notifications of additional comments that appear in little boxes next to the area that I am writing my comment in. I don't know if the issues are related, but I really don't care if other people are making comments while I am making a few of my own.

    shoot - forgot to add - if I look at the history in the back arrow, I see the same page (e.g., a page with replies to a comment of mine, for ex) repeated as if each reply on that page I read was interpreted by Chrome as a different page.

    Hmm. That's an interesting wrinkle (re separate history listing for each reply).
    Sorry not to have much of an answer for you yet, and now that we're in the middle of the holiday week it might not get addressed fully till Monday. But it has not fallen off the list of items to check.
