Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C; InfoPath.2; MS-RTC LM 8; .NET4.0E; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729)

Steps to reproduce:

search in Firefox.  Click on the cached or link URL below the blurb for each match and spam redirect happens.  If you take time to copy the underlying url of the title link (there are three with each match -- two are bad).



Expected results:

It always should go to the link -- not to some advertiser's inserted redirect.
