Why is Firefox sending me to google.com to sign in when I type in netflix.com?

Posted
attached screenshot, below is the url that sends me to google... https://accounts.google.com/signin/oauth/identifier?hd=*&client_id=733586745572-han3us7ubu091en0tj95c7ra5msihbap.apps.googleusercontent.com&as=Iq1EEr1cV4MLzaFTxr1_Ig&destination=https%3A%2F%2Fmeechum.netflix.com&approval_state=!ChQ1OGh2ZDZuYklVRS1zdnNZbXhHQRIfbzloOF9ObThtWGtRa013TWpqbVNUV1VpWVN1SmV4WQ%E2%88%99APNbktkAAAAAXBf-ObZsxhAhBor0w98LjHMOlkJHjrdb&oauthgdpr=1&xsrfsig=AHgIfE9bWNFf-oYuiUSs1lzvPDWv_W2FQA&flowName=GeneralOAuthFlow

Thanks for trying... this just happened with the latest Firefox update. I was getting a security warning the last update, now it forwards to google.

Hello geomguy,

A complete stab in the dark, but could it be that you're using Google Home  ?

https://help.netflix.com/en/node/55587

Edit :

I just noticed your "me again ..." post, so the above doesn't make sense.

When I enter "netflix.com" in the address bar it takes me straight to netflix, and I must admit that I have no idea what goes on here.

I'm sure that somebody else will know the answer though .....

First : you inadvertently marked your post as Chosen Solution - you can rectify that by clicking on the 'Undo' button to the right.

Then : you mention getting a security warning - when you typed in the address bar ' netflix.com '  ? What security software do you have installed  ?
