In Tweetdeck, you can view conversations by clicking the in reply to portion of tweets. This opens up a column in overlay. This overlay column is also used when you open up a user's profile. The column can be closed by clicking the X in the upper right of the column or by pressing Esc.

Let's say that I've opened a user's profile in this overlay column. Reading this user's recent tweets, one of them is a reply, so I click in reply to which replaces the contents of the overlay column with the conversation details.

If I close this column, then the overlay column disappears. Is there anyway that I can navigate back through the history of the column to get to the user's profile again? Often times I find that I want to continue reading what I had there, but I have to start at the very beginning of the process to get back to where I was which is more than slightly annoying, especially if I was several levels in.

I'm afraid there's no way currently. Tweetdeck always fetches the entire conversation every time you click on in_reply_to. You could post it as a feature request, though.

@rchern There is no history, per se. The same is used for all, so the previous state gets discarded –  Sathya Dec 18 '10 at 16:57
