When I type "trends" in Firefox 25.0 address bar, it returns what looks like a web server running on my PC, although I am not running a web server. I don't have the score to post the screen shot, but specifically it says:

It works! This is the default web page for this server. The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

Why would this display, instead of the normal behavior of the search engine? I'm using Windows 7 with the Anaconda Python distribution installed, but there is no Python interpreter fired up.

What happens if you ping "trends"? Is it perhaps a hostname on your local network? You can also type something like "current trends" or "2013 trends" to force a web search instead of a hostname resolution. – Enigma Nov 8 '13 at 21:52
How about if you search for other keywords? – Darius Nov 8 '13 at 22:21
@ Enigma. I believe this is what's happening. Seems like a bad name for an alias, but I don't know much about servers. – Stix Nov 9 '13 at 3:10
@Darius. No other keywords trigger the effect. – Stix Nov 9 '13 at 3:14
@Stix you don't happen to be using OpenDNS do you...? – Darius Nov 9 '13 at 12:56
