msn.com

Has anyone else have msn.com change to bing.com? Checked on all computer in house and they all are being redirected.

Click for full size
Opened up a new tab, and put in
http://www.msn.com
 
and it opened without any problems (see picture).

By the way, added the code tag to show exactly what I typed into my browser window, just in case there was some question. I'm using Waterfox Version 18.0.1

Have you checked your hosts files for changes?

Looks like it must have been a DNS issue. It is back to normal now.

Re: msn.com
I am having the same problem with MSN.com with Bing giving me only a blank page on www.msn.com. No other site is affected, and it is happening only on .
I have W 7 and FF 18. I returned to V 18 from 19 as I thought it might solve the problem, but no change.

Thanks,
Jerry

I'm running IE10 on Windows 7 and managed to fix the blank page issue with MSN.com by resetting IE options to their default conditions.
Tools -->
Advanced Tab -->
Reset Internet Explorer Settings --> Reset Button

Re: msn.com

for msn.com
I have 2 W7 computers with IE and Chrome.
on #1 IE8 works but not chrome
on #2 chrome works but not IE9
If I start a Private Browsing window for the bad one on each, then they get msn.com

Ok I did a little investigation here. Not sure if it means anything or not, but I did want to point out what I noticed.

I got thinking if maybe something is not right as far as the difference between the following two url's

URL #1: http://www.msn.com
URL #2: msn.com
 

I did both a nslookup and a ping to both. Its interesting that both return a different IP back. Ping's don't resolve, but I don't think that means a whole lot, as I can get to the page just fine.

nslookup msn.com
Server:  pfsense.localdomain
Address:  192.168.1.1
 
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    msn.com
Address:  65.55.206.228
 
nslookup www.msn.com
Server:  pfsense.localdomain
Address:  192.168.1.1
 
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    us.co1.cb3.glbdns.microsoft.com
Address:  131.253.34.194
Aliases:  www.msn.com
 
ping msn.com
 
Pinging msn.com [65.55.206.228] with 32 bytes of data:

Ping statistics for 65.55.206.228:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),
 
ping www.msn.com
 
Pinging us.co1.cb3.glbdns.microsoft.com [131.253.34.194] with 32 bytes of data:

Ping statistics for 131.253.34.194:

So, take that for what its worth.

What prompted me to investigate this was the thread about some people not being able to get to
navy.mil
 
but they could get to
http://www.navy.mil
 
due to the fact there are no A records for the first. You can get there to the first one, if your browser appends the www. in front of it first.

The tread that I'm talking about is below

»[DNS] Can Comcast customers get to navy.mil?

Again, not sure if this is the same issue or not, but I did want to point this out in case it could help shed some light on the issues that people are having.
