My homepage works fine with Internet Explorer.

But if I load the homepage in Firefox, Firefox opens a specific page, washer.html.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I just pulled up in Chrome 10 and got redirected to – Matt Ball Apr 13 '11 at 2:43

Your website uses Google website optimizer to do a so-called A/B test. This will randomly show some visitors (in your case: some browser) another page.



should help. If you cannot remove that yourself, then I guess there must be some setting in Google web optimizer itself, which defines which pages are shown. Just have both pages refer to the homepage then.

Thank you, That did fix the prob! – Harold Apr 13 '11 at 12:52

I just pulled it up in FF 4, and it loaded the root page, as expected. Perhaps your browser has cached a redirect request; try clearing it's cache and hitting the root page again.
