When I try to access Stack Overflow, I get to the Stack Exchange blog. But the URL is still stackoverflow.com.

When I try to go to my profile page on Stack Overflow, I get a 404 error. Did I do something wrong or is it Stack Overflow?

    Something is seriously broken on your end, it seems. Oct 29, 2013 at 15:23
  • What happens when you click a link to it. Like this: stackoverflow.com

  • Virus. Worm. Spyware. Malware. Pick one! Oh, also might be userscript/extension/addon specific to your browser. Try different browser. Oct 29, 2013 at 15:25
  • @JonW I get to go to blog again.

  • @loko virus takes few seconds to infect a computer, same for worms/trojans etc. Oct 29, 2013 at 15:26
  • @ShaWizDowArd I didn't even make any changes to my computer or anything.

    To be more constrictive here: click Start --> cmd --> type ping stackoverflow.com and see what you get. You should see "Pinging stackoverflow.com [198.252.206.16]...". The IP for blog.stackoverflow.com is different: 198.252.206.20 Oct 29, 2013 at 15:27
  • @ShaWizDowArd That is what I am getting...

  • OK, another idea: browse to 198.252.206.16 - what you see? Oct 29, 2013 at 15:31
  • @ShaWizDowArd Site not found

  • One last thing, try different browser. Oct 29, 2013 at 15:33
  • @ShaWizDowArd It worked, but still how is it only failing in Firefox?

Sounds like the evil work of misbehaving user script, extension or add-on in your browser.

Disable ALL user scripts, extensions and add-ons you have on the misbehaving browser, then turn them on one by one until you find the culprit.
