That may very well be so - after all this exchange started with me
complaining how I had difficulty doing just that. :)

I don't know what you mean here, though.  I was not trying to talk
about sticky-the-1st-kind at all.  Or rather, I was assuming it was
FALSE, as is the default and as most users would have it.  And I was
replying to mattack who had just made it clear that he would definitely
not use sticky-the-1st=off.  (With *human* "browsing mode" I meant
a state of mind, not a state of sticky-the-1st.)

The Yuuuck means he definitely doesn't want it.
