The "latest" skin was forced in this manner {whether by design, or by accident) since the change to the site's menu structure for the "Black Friday" & "Cyber Monday" options:

[ http://www.hotukdeals.com/feedback/old-layout-http-www-hotukdeals-com-tsv-2011-09-2062557?p=23476328 ]

The trend has continued with the introduction of the "Flamedeer", "Boxing Day", & "January Sales" menu options.

The interaction with the menu options differs when signed-in & according to which browser (version), & operating system used.

If you find a browser that works to your satisfaction, simply continue using that.

However, as has always been the case since the (current) "latest" (new) "skin" was introduced, the September 2011 "skin" is no longer supported. The fact it is still functioning at all is a bonus.

Basing your use of the site on the design from over three years ago, & not accepting either of the two later major redesign decisions (&, additionally the introduction of the mobile [Smartphone/tablet-centric] "apps"), may mean you lose the ability to continue browsing effectively "overnight" when it is determined that the older layout/presentation is no longer going to be available.

A new laptop with Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.1?

Presumably new to you, not necessarily an up-to-date machine.

See you in approximately a week from when you first visited the site.
