For years, I have had custom Application keyboard Shortcuts set up for Safari, using Cmd plus the left and right arrows to navigate through tabs.

I just upgraded to Safari 5.1, and for some reason it has taken over these shortcuts to be equivalent to Back and Forward in the history. This is despite the actual shortcuts for Back and Forward being Cmd-[ and Cmd-] . Even if I override the Back/Forward shortcuts explicitly to something else, it still won't let go of its death grip on my trusted tab navigation combos.

Any way to fix this?


I've just finished my extension to fix that problem.
