Well just to add a couple of things(I dont know if this would matter or
not, but just adding it)  First, the website that I got redirected to
was a 'google type' website, meaning that it looked like something that
google would have made.  So I guess it is on their side?  Secondly, I
use privoxy and tor.  But like I said, I have been using these for a
while, and this just came out of the blue and only happened twice
earlier this morning.  And I have used google many times since with no
probs.  But I will let mozilla know and see what they have to say...
Thanks for all the help guys!
