Does anyone know why firefox defaults to google if you type in an address that isn't "localhost/.../?", but when I put in 127.0.0.1 it worked perfectly?


if ($problem==mark_solved){

solution ($problem);}

 

if ($skill_level==learning && $my_knowledge==the_required_level_of_knowledge){

     echo "I will try to help, because you're still $skill_level , and my skill level is at $my_knowledge";

} else {

     echo "I can't help you, go away.";

}

localhost isn't being seen as a valid web address, so it doing a google search instead

 

You can modify the browsers behavior

https://support.mozi...-keyword-search

 

can even change in your hosts file to redirect somewhere else

127.0.0.1  localhost

localhost get-a-domain-name.com


DynaIndex.com
