Every time I start, or open a new shell within iTerm/Terminal, the default browser loads a (broken) Apple man page.
The preference file gives no clue as far as I can see as to why this occurs. Does anybody have any idea how to fix this?

Is it possible that one of the
$SHELL startup files initiates or opens something? Do
$ echo $SHELL in that terminal to see which command interpreter you are using. I'm not sure what
iTerm/Terminal is, but if it starts any one of the usual command interpreters (
ksh, etc.), then a startup file will be sourced. Each interpreter uses its own set. Check the
man page for your particular one to find out which files to check. For instance,
bash sources some or all of these files, depending on file permissions and existence - taken straight from the
