Negative there. I disabled all the plugins AND tried safe mode to no avail. Upon googling for...
google "The previous page is sending you to"
The very first link describes the EXACT thing I'm talking about. Except that blog indicates that google will only do that if you access the redirect URL directly and not if you actually click a search result. This has just started within the last day or so (I literally just now noticed it, but I'm not sure of the last time I googled)
IT's very odd indeed.
On firefox 2.0.13 I am unable to reproduce the above result. I have logged into my google account and then done a search from google.com - are you sure you might not of been on igoogle.com or the like (that it might not be a glitch where google is only having that issue from certain search entry boxes)?
Yes - I'm sure I'm not on a google derivative. For instance, clicking any link on the following results page leads me to the intermediary 'Redirect Page'. As indicated in my post right before yours, there is at least 1 other person in the world experiencing this...
What's weird is that if I sign in to my account in IE and do the search, I'm led straight to the results. It only happens in firefox, and ONLY when I'm signed in to my account (which eliminates the possibility of it being an account setting)
