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.

me again... FYI... If I use Safari it does not send me to google.com when I type in netflix.com.... also Bing is selected as preferred search engine in Firefox.

Hello geomguy,

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

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  ?
