The Facebook Like Box seems to break the browser back button when browsing my site on Safari.

While running Safari, if I goto


then click the 'Screnshots' button. You'll be taken to


Now click the browser back button. It won't work! The only thing it will do is make the Like Box disappear. This issue doesn't appear when using FireFox, and viewing the HTTP response headers using Web Sniffer shows my site isn't doing anything wrong. That just leaves the Like Box to blame.
