    Running XP home and inadvertently typed:

    http://http://abc.com or whatever
    http://http://forums.techguy.org

    In Firefox, I get redirected back to Microsoft (!) while in I/E, Opera, I get an error (as does a Mac system).

    Why does Firefox redirect to Microsoft on this obvious error?

    Just curious, yet puzzled Ivan:confused:

    For what it is worth, Mozilla also returns an error page. Seems obvious. But Firefox, the browser redirects me to Microsoft when I click on any double http, ie

    http://http://google.com

    Right back to Uncle Bill's. How come, Ivan
