    Just upgraded to Safari 4 on by aluminium macbook

    Example of problem:

    I entered the site www.soccernet.com into the address bar - the page loaded http://news.bbc.co.uk/ with the soccernet title at the top of the window.

    I have both these address in the bookmarks and regularly visit both of them. Regardless of what i do it seems to keep going to the bbc site.

    I removed all my addons (GLIMS) and reset safari - clearing all data. Still had the same problem.

    I restarted my macbook and it seemed to fix the problem. I was able to view soccernet site.

    However, it happened again but with a completely different page. eg. youtube.com loads some advertising page. strange...

    Anyone got this problem or suggestions??

    EDIT:

    Actually the same thing is happening on Firefox... but only since i updated safari - maybe coincidental

    That's not a problem with Safari, or any web browser for that matter... that's a problem with the server that the webpage is hosted on.

    I am having this problem, too. I enter www.abcnews.com and I'm taken to www.washingtonpost.com. A couple of others do it, too. Happens with Firefox as well, so it must be at the OS level, or maybe my ISP? Something ain't right...
