i've run into a problem that has me stumped.


running Win 10 build 16299.309. latest updates, firefox 59.0.2


when I try to load a specific website (in this case dnsstuff.com) I get a redirect that's trying to send me to




oddly, this only happens with this specific site, none other.


Does not happen when using IE or Chrome, so i assume it's browser dependant


so far i have:

  • uninstalled, reinstalled Firefox
  • removed all extensions and add ons
  • deleted profile
  • ran malwarebytes


I;m at a loss to explain this, or find the source.
