    about 2 of every 5 times i try to go to a website i get transfered to this page that displays search information based on what website i type in.

    For example, when i try to go to weather.com i get transfered and the page displays lists of weather sites.

    Ive noticed in the source that it shows this:

    http://apps5.oingo.com/apps/domainp...=TELE39H7&s=weather.com&ip=67.XXX.66.78&hl=en

    Any idea whats going on or how i can get it to go away?

    Are you sure you're typing the URL correctly. I get this when I type in a non-existing URL address (usually a spelling mistake or the wrong extension [.com vs .org or something like that]), but one that is very close to the suggestions that these search pages come up with. I just assumed that the search pages linked up all these "close" URLs to their page.

    Weird. Have you tried resetting Safari? Have you got any third party add-ons for Safari too?

    Yeah, but is this just because the "search site" has added the 'wrong' URLs recently?
    As for the pop ups I assume you have block popup selected (command + K), but I've also been getting some recent popups, I guess sites are finding loopholes in Safari's (and no doubt others) browser popup blocker.
    Annoying yes
    But what can you do?

    No Third Party Add-Ons and yea i tried to reset safari.

    It mainly happens when i mis-spell something. Yet i dont remember what it used to do when i would mis-spell something.

    Ah, sorry, I thought you meant it did the search, even if you typed the URL correctly. :eek:

    Okay, well let's try to narrow it down to a URL problem or an ISP/router/connection problem. If I type in weather.com, I get the attached page. Now, if you click on http://www.weather.com/ do you also get that page or do you get the search page you linked to? Does the problem occur for links too?
