When I click on Save 33% on Hell Let Loose on Steam store.steampowered.com › app › Hell_Let_Loose That is where I ended up.


Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

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

I think you misunderstood what i was trying to say , I attached 2 images the one with seam as the #1 result is how I want my search results. but if I wait like a second the amazon links pop up, when I click the steam link im brought to the correct page. its just sometimes the online stores pop up right before i click teh links.

You can do a malware scan just to be sure.

There's been on going litigation with Google and how it priorities paid advertiser above other in their search engine. This is not new just searching on line and you can find complaints about search engine giving favors to those that pay to play.
