Sorry for the title, its hard to put the problem into proper words.
Basically, in Firefox or Chrome, I try to navigate to stackoverflow.com.
The request fails and the URL I see in the navigation bar is:
This looks shady and my internet seems slower lately. I have a few questions:
- Why is my request going through this strange URL?
- Do the query parameters reveal my identity?
- How can I stop this?
I use my cell phone’s 3G network and tether it to my laptop.
