    google search with firefox gets reloaded?


    bit of an odd question. when using firefox, i search (google by default) with the old separate search box. noticed today (or last day or 2?) that it opens the results in a new tab (which is normal), but that is then reloaded immediately.

    it would appear it first opens a google page with results, then redirects to another different google page.
    eg.. from
    bbc - Recherche Google
    to
    bbc - Recherche Google string of alphanumeric stuff without the brackets]

    seems innocuous enough, just somewhat irritating even though the redirect is fast

    wonder if it's just google doing its thing or if it's something caused by stuff like noscript/ublock origin/umatrix or some firefox setting.

    just curious.

    :)

  2. Firefox for Windows 10

    Downloaded Firefox from Mozilla.org

    Originally downloaded from a google search for Firefox. The downloads are all the same...I get re-directed to an app store and it goes no further...no install.

  3. Bing in windows Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393

    My preferred browser is Firefox, even though it is set for google it still switches to Bing. Is there a way to get it set to Google and have it stay there without Bing opening when I do a search.

    oddly enough.. that's not the case anymore this morning.. (so far anyway)..

    or rather... as before it opens up in new tab (eg.. searching bbc)
    bbc - Recherche Google
    then when the page loads, the url is shown as
    bbc - Recherche Google alphanumeric stuff again]

    It could be that Google is re-directing you to 'Region Specific' results,
    Try experimenting with

    , (no country redirect), as your search platform.
