go to test url.
page gets reloaded by only the first site shown in the rotation
ever gets displayed.

hit back/reload buttons and it goes to the correct site in the rotation
then at the next refresh it returns to the first site shown.

this will most likely a dup of other bugs that are already filed
but I wanted to make sure...

same type of refresh scheme.  If you went to your
custom page (or maybe even the default page) and you never saw 
any new content changes from the first page that you viewed
then you might be observing the same problem.

with a custom page:
This page only updates every 5min., ..., 20 minutes later it seemed to be behaving correctly.
On the one hand, the main frame seemed to update  when the top frame refreshed. I sent myself webmail inbetween refreshes 
to see this.

On the other hand, I do note that my news headlines were timestamped and 3+ hours old and never changed while I tested this. 
Netcenter claims these headlines are updated hourly yet mine were stamped 2:58pm while the top frame quoted the time as
