Hi!What’s the problem-when I type something in the address bar of my browser(FF), if there’s something wrong with the adress, yahoo tells me that I’m wrong.Why is that?Is this really secure DNS or some way for comodo to implement the yahoo search, instead of the toolbar?Is there some agreement between comodo and yahoo and why nobody tells it, if yes?
My search engine(originally) is google, not yahoo.
This can help. And don’t worry about google logging you, if you don’t have anything to hide, you’re safe ;D
As far as I know, no yahoo/comodo agreement. There was with Ask toolbar I believe before in the past, but that was dismantled…
So you’re saying that if you look in your web browser, it now says your default search engine is Yahoo? Because it is impossible for this to happen by changing your DNS settings. If the default has changed and you didn’t change it, I would suspect you’ve been infected by malware.
Yes, I can see the screenshot. However, you were saying your default search engine had changed. Now this does not appear to be the case.
It is quite common for DNS services to redirect users to a search page instead of just giving a DNS error page. I don’t use SecureDNS, but I suspect this is what is happening. Perhaps other users of SecureDNS can speak up about what happens when they mistype a URL?
If SecureDNS is redirecting your mistyped URL’s, you can give the NoRedirect Firefox add-on a try. I used to use this when I ran OpenDNS, but I haven’t used it for a while. You may need to add a custom REGEX to deal with SecureDNS’s redirects. (Assuming that SecureDNS is redirecting…)
OK, I did a test and it’s not comodo’s fault.It’s something FF related.I changed my DNS to the original state, restarted the PC and did the same search like before.IE gave me an error, not found, but FF gave me the same yahoo result.(see screenshots)The strange thing is that, before i had a page with a comodo’s logo on it, when I’m on a non existent or broken page.This yahoo thing is new.I suspect there’s something with the last FF update.Going to do a deeper search of this.Once again-SORRY, it’s NOT a comodo’s fault!
p.s.I cannot upload the screenshots.The forum says:“The upload folder is full” ???
