This website is offline
No cached version is available What's wrong? The most likely causes:
The server is down for maintenance There may be a network problem The site may be experiencing excessive load
Retry for a live version of the site What's CloudFlare?
This website uses CloudFlare in order to help keep it online when the server is down by serving cached copies of pages when they are unavailable. Unfortunately, a cached copy of the page you requested is not available, but you may be able to reach other cached pages on the site.
What website is this?
Screen shot added. Sorry for the delay, I'm not used to taking screen shots.
hello the site you were showing is a known search-hijacker & this sounds like a problem possibly caused by malware on your pc. please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and do a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and/or a different tool like the free version of malwarebytes.
afterwards install the search reset addon - it will revert the most common customziations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/
Ok, so you have a virus, and the website you are trying to go to is malicious.
and Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings should help
Thanks to the great forums available and the interested and people using them I'm back on firefox. The Reset worked and I deleted a virus on a full scan, so your information was spot on, thanks to you all. Cheers, john109
