    I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but every time go to ff.net with out using a link in my history, I get a 'this site for sale!' page. Does anyone have a solution/comment?

    It doesn't happen to me.

    If you weren't apparently using Linux, I'd have guessed that you'd been 0wn3d. Maybe a screwed up HOSTS file, brower hijack or something.

    Is it still happening? It might've been an internet hiccup, or a bad DNS server. Try flushing your DNS cache and check that you're connecting to the right DNS servers.

    Eh, I dont think the problem is that complicated yak. Sounds to me like its just the wrong url entered into the adressbar, example:fannfiction.net, fanfictiob.net etc etc.

    DO make sure that it isn't fanfiction.com or something. I 'defiantly' type it in correctly.

    Yak, it could be Firefox, I suppose. I doubt it, though


    EDIT: I concede defeat. I'll clear my history of the mistype. Sorry I bothered the forums.
