Butter fingers my google!

I typed in "www.google.com" and got THAT Verizon page! I'm looking going, WTF???! I type google.com and same page! I loaded the proper URL (»www.google.com) and I still get that!!!
So I flushed my DNS, deleted any (I had the FIOS one and the trusty old 4.2.2.1...) DNS server names/caches and then replaced the DNS with OpenDNS numbers.

Gone! No more Verizon redirect. You should do the same.

Hey, and this was on OS 10.5 !!

Same here. I was getting the redirect even when the address I typed was completely correct and well known good address.

It also seemed to cache the redirect somewhere because after the first failed google.com resolution it would happen every time until I restarted my browser.

I followed the instructions to add .14 to the last octet of the DNS Servers but I'm still getting the message. Gues I'll have to go the OpenDNS.
