firefox redirecting to a diffrent domain name (domain hijacking), this is only happening for firefox, all the other browsers go to the correct website.
We have a domain name www.xxxxxxxx.com. When some of the users in our office try to access the site using firefox the website is redirected to a different website all together www.yyyyyyyy.com. the URL is correct but the website shown is wrong. On the same device using other browsers (chrome, IE) the website opens normally. So i am assuming this is not device level issue but at the browser issue. I have screenshots for the same. the issue is not happening on my device but on the other devices in our organisation.
