My Firefox explorer gets redirected when accessing Match.com, but my Chrome explorer can access Match.com? How do you fix this?

Veröffentlicht

I open my Firefox web explorer, go to www.match.com and it gets redirected to this site: https://www.lexamore.nl/ But my Chrome web explorer does not have this problem. Can somebody tell me what needs to be repaired??

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

The problem is not solved. I get 404 Page Not Found.

This is a nasty problem. Thank you for looking for an answer. I am sure it's out there.

http://www.match.com/

https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Clear+Recent+History#w_how-do-i-remove-a-single-website-from-my-history

Remove History For One Site

Open the History Manager <Control><Shift> H. In the search bar, enter the name of the site. Right-click on one of the listings and select Forget About This Site. This should remove all information, including any settings.

Please let me know if you have any other suggestions. Thanks

I suspect adware. But you are using a Linux. Go thru the programs installed on your system. If there is something you don't know what it is, use a web search on it.

Hello georges5729,

Are you by any chance located in the Netherlands ?

When I click on the links to "match.com" here on this support forum page, I too get redirected to "lexamore.nl", which is a Dutch dating site.

And then I found these search results ......

Looks to me like "lexamore.nl" is just the Dutch version of "match.com".

Thank you for clearing that up.

I ran both sites on Scamadviser, and they both came up "clean".

I toggled the redirect-related preference on the "about:config" page, which made no difference for me (I am in the Netherlands).

Maybe you could give this add-on a try :

FWIW : when I try to visit "match.com" using Edge (I'm, not on Linux, but on Windows), it too redirects me to "lexamore.nl", which shows that this is not just a Firefox issue.

McCoy, When I use Google Chrome, it doesn't redirect. I can access Match.com. The address bar shows a padlock followed by: MATCH GROUP, LLC [US] | https://match.com/messages

Please refer to my original post. Thanks for all the help.

Please refer to my original post.

I was referring to your original post by saying that I'm not on Linux, but merely pointing out that this is not just a Firefox issue, as the same thing happens using another browser.

Have you considered using the add-on I suggested ?

Yes, I have used your suggested add on. But you may be right. This might not be a firefox problem. Instead, it just might be a Match.com problem. Can this virus type behavior be caused by the Match.com websites? Could it be match.com web servers are infected? Since I don't know how these things work. I have to leave this problem unsolved and just use Google Chrome. They seem to have their act together. Thanks

Seeing you say about Chrome : "They seem to have their act together, I thought I'd try something and typed in the address bar :

www.us.match.com

And whaddaya know : no redirection .....
