No respons when I click some link at http://www.howstuffworks.com browser: ie8 and FF 3.6
It may have something to do with Ad Muncher. I use v4.8 31318/2778

That site shows up fine for me in Opera 10.

I tried IE8 and FF 3.5.3 and the link shows the web page up fine in both of those. You have something else going on somewhere.

there is a bug with clicking specific links on that site.

it's something we're still working on.

use right click / open link for those links.

My bad. I didn't see the "clicking links" part. I thought they were just talking about the site opening up. It is doing as they said.

This is unlikely to be fixed (properly) any time soon.

Anyone who wishes to can fix it on their end with the following custom entry.

Don't match against keyword:
/b/ss/hswprod/

It will allow tracking by a 3rd party company of your clicks.

Which is why it's not a fix I'm willing to add to the default list.

A proper fix is still on my plate.
