Imrpove Inbox navigation: Skip to page (#)

Imrpove Inbox navigation: Skip to page (#)

Short, concise description of the idea
If there are numerous pages of messages in my inbox, I want to be able to skip to a specific page, rather than going through the pages using the next button.

Full description of the idea
When you are viewing messages in your Inbox, the upper right hand corner tells you how many pages of messages that you have. For example, if I have eleven pages of messages it will say 'Page 1 of 11'.

If I wanted to skip to page '11' without clicking the next button numerous times, I would click the next button once so that I was on page '2 of 11'.

At this time, I would see a URL in the web address bar that looks something like this [http://www.livejournal.com/inbox/?page=2&view=all]. By amending the URL and replacing 2 with 11 and pressing enter, I could skip to page 11 without needing to keep clicking the next button until I made it to page 11.

I want an in-feature way to do this without the need to amend the URL.
