On Yahoo Finance trying to get stock quote get redirected to page for a Yahoo Finance optimized version of FireFox. I'm suspicious.

Posted

On Yahoo Finance to get stock quotes. Suddenly when clicking to enter a quote I get redirected to a page that indicates there is a Yahoo Finance enhanced version of FireFox available. Keeps coming up, can't get quotes. Since it doesn't go to a Mozilla address (that I can determine) I'm suspicious about this link.

It is a "customized" version offered by Yahoo - http://downloads.yahoo.com/firefox/

It adds the Yahoo toolbar, changes your default searches to Yahoo, changes your homepage to Yahoo. It may make other changes.

You can check for malware, if you are suspicious. See:
