Every time I enter a link to a google service, I see a notice that says "Your should be redirected in a moment..." and then I get redirected to the Stanford University website (https://pass.stanford.edu/signin.html). It is not a specific website redirecting me, but rather some algorithm is detecting a google link and sending me to Stanford University instead . For instance, if I paste in a link to a particular location in Google Maps, I will end up at Stanford instead. I have no idea how to fix this, but it makes me avoid Firefox and use Chrome because Chrome does not redirect. I would rather use Firefox.

Donthaveacow, the problem is not the Stanford site, the problem is having every google link I paste into Firefox redirected to the Stanford site. I am not trying to get to the Stanford site in the first place, so any change to my Stanford account it is irrelevant to the problem set. Nevertheless, I thank you for trying.

I finally solved the problem by erasing all cookies from my computer and also all browsing history, and I can now paste in google links and actually get to the intended web page.
