So here is my problem. Whenever I try to access websites that become unavailable from time to time I get this OpenDNS search page instead of the default Firefox error page. So the other day, I tried to access LUE2.org. And I got this:

Instead of the regular Error Page. I've scanned many times (with about 3 different programs), nothing was found. I Google Searched it nothing useful came up except this OpenDNS site. So I am honestly not sure whether this is a HiJack or not. I have never visited this website before, and I never signed up for any of it's services.

I thank you for any advice or information, and at the same time apologize for a lack of detail. If you need more detail I will gladly post more.

Thanks, Dr. Watson

OpenDNS tries to fix known typos, in exchange for redirecting you through a website that uses targeted advertising.

More info here and here.
