    Browsers: Yahoo hijack

    We have had several members (including a moderator) reporting that when they visit the site, and click on a forum/thread that they are being redirected to a yahoo page.

    Please be aware that this is NOT an Ausphotography caused issue. We have found that it relates to an add-on that members have installed to their browser. There appears to be add-ons that have been hacked to cause this.

    If you experience this issue, in your internet browser, disable each add-on, one by one, and then test if the problem occurs. Eventually you will find the add-on that is causing this redirection issue and be able to disable it permanently/un-install it, to resolve the matter.

    If we get more information about add-ons that are known to be the cause, we will update this thread to assist further.

    Ta Rick. What next

    Forget about "Have gun, will travel." It's more to the point that:
    "Have computer, will trouble."

    I had this problem, this was the add on that when disabled the problem ceased.
    Cheers

    PS I don't know where the add on came from but that and another are not ones I installed.
