Firefox suggest another website instead of mine

more options

Hello My website is "do-dance.ru". When I type the address and press Enter to go to this website, Firefox quite often shows me a pop-up window asking whether I meant actually "dance-do.ru", which is totally another web-site. How can I address this? When my clients type "do-dance.ru" I want them to be directed to my webpage without any suggestions for another web-sites from Firefox, please.

Thank you. Igor Isaev.


do-dance.ru


edit: removed phone numbers and email address prom public though search and spam bots may have found them already.

Do you just enter dance-do.ru or http://dance-do.ru or what?

I'm sorry, but my Firefox is in Russian language, so when I copy-paste my Troubleshooting Info, it's all in Russian. Hope you can navigate otherwise I can help.

I entered "do-dance.ru" and here is attached suggestion from Firefox to go to "dance-do.ru".

I don't think that this notification bar is coming from Firefox.

Are you using a direct connection or a proxy?

Firefox can block redirection, but this looks like something different.

  • Firefox > Options/Preferences > Advanced > General : Accessibility : [ ] "Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page"

Can you translate all the words in that bar?

Can you right-click that bar and get a context menu (possibly with Inspect Element) opening or doesn't anything happen?

This bar I guess is coming from Firefox. It says "Maybe, you wanted to open http://www.dance-do.ru" and 2 buttons "Go" and "Close tooltip". The button on the very right says "Close" with an "x". I can't right-click it, it's not an HTML element.

Hello,

I typed "do-dance.ru" in the address bar and i go direct to the website without message to redirect, maybe the problem is one configuration, addon or proxy as cor-el said, try access the website in safe mode:

Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.

Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!

You can try the DOM Inspector to see if you can use that extension to identify the origin of this notification.

The DOM Inspector (DOMi) has a menu item (Edit > Select Element By Click) and a toolbar button "Find a node to inspect by clicking on it" (left icon on the toolbar in the DOMi).

  • open the browser window in the DOMi (File > Inspect Chrome Document) and choose the first entry from the drop-down list.
  • click the "Find a node to inspect by clicking on it" button and use the keyboard (Alt Tab) or the Task bar to go back to the browser window (do not click in the browser window other than the title bar).
  • click that element with the mouse and keep the button pressed until you see a red border to indicate the the DOMi has located that element in the DOM tree.

The icon on that infobar (orange circle with some kind of figure in it?) doesn't look familiar. It might be associated with one of your extensions or services.

If you search the Russian phrase in the bar (other than the part specific to the address) in quotation marks, do you find anything on the web where people have identified the cause?

Looks that it is caused by the Yandex toolbar.

Thank you, cor-el - this is indeed Yandex Elements add-on, and not Firefox. Will further investigate with Yandex. P.S. Yandex is top Russian search engine like Google.
