Firefox opens automatically this "porn site" at private.com when adding "private" instead of "-private" at the target line of the shortcut. This is hilarious, but could have been so much worse (ironic) had I actually had someone watching me configuring "advanced privacy" on this computer which is not mine.

The question: is that a prank? (Maybe fix it?)

This is a public forum - don't post anything like this here again  !

Ever  !!!

Note: I am editing this to remind all users of the Forum Rules and Guidelines about profanity

If you enter a string ( no www or .com) the browser thinks it should use a search engine on it, or in the case of one word, thinks its the name of a website.

Hi there, I know there has not been any direct profanity used here, however, I have to remind you all that the Forums Rules and Guidelines still apply, as long as we stick to the support of Firefox, we are ok. However, this may be an offtopic question you may want to ask the website owner. I am going to lock this thread.
