Firefox redirects to wysiwyg page

Suddenly i had the problem that Firefox redirected sometimes to a wysiwyg:// page. It seems to be some caching problem and with some users it dissapeared by changing DNS servers. It’s strange, have not seen it before:

not solved yet…

update: found it! I enabled disqus on the site I experiened it on. After I disabled the WordPress plugin, it no longer appeared the be the case. Which means: any website out there using disqus could probably do the same thing. (or… any website using the same caching trick).

So let’s see if there is something about this on the disqus website. Hmmm.. nothing. But, I think it is this setting:

it probably pre-processes the links on my page and the redirects to that page.

I have turned the option off and the problem seems to be disappeared.

The Best of 3 Billion Firefox Add-ons Downloads

Via The Best of 3 Billion Add-ons Downloads | Mozilla Add-ons Blog I found that 3 billion firefox add-ons have been downloaded, which is … a lot …

The number 1 Firefox add-on is AdBlock Plus   with 166 million downloads. IMHO …. it is a good add-on (because I use it) (together with do-not-track-plus) but … it is a bad add-on because … website makers don’t earn money anymore from ads that are blocked by AdBlock Plus :)
