How do I get rid of a referring url setting that overrides any attemps at using Google?

Somehow one of our kid's school websites has become the referring URL every time I try to use Google on firefox. The school uses "OneLogin" and the main log in page for the school is now the landing page for any google address (maps, drive etc) that I attempt to use. Can't find how to unlink the two.

So what happens if you type another url in does it still go back to the school url? And is this your own computer that it happens to when you login or is this a school computer?

You can check the connection settings.

  • Options/Preferences -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings

If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then try to select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.

See "Firefox connection settings":
