Just noticed that Moon of Alabama has discovered the same problem.

Fortunately for me, I have people like you who bother sifting through the White House Web site, saving me the heartburn. What would I do without you? Think about drinking myself to death a lot less often, probably.

If you don't want websites hijacking your Firefox, use noscript. It works great when they try to pop up ads or disable things like cut/paste or keyboard shortcuts.

Thanks—I use AdBlock and Flashblock, but haven't looked at noscript. I'll check it out.

In the case of whitehouse.gov I expected they'd eventually realize they'd screwed up (since I can't imagine why they'd purposely sabotage Alt-left arrow) and fix it, but after two months I expect it's going to stay this way.
