I'm not very bright about these things...so I am here to ask for help.
And I figure if I'm having this problem...maybe others are, too.
Whenever I enter www.hometheaterforum.com into my URL bar, Firefox wants to direct me to Huddler and I get the following error message:
Even when I "google" Home Theater Forum and click on the link www.hometheaterforum.com in the search results the browser tries to direct me to the huddler site and prompts the error message. It also happens when I click on the HTF icon in the top left-hand corner of every HTF page.
Is there a setting that have to change? Maybe clear my cache/cookies or something. I hate to do that and have to re-enter all my passwords, etc.
Do you get the same issue with IE? If so, I'd say your ISP hasn't had the DNS records propagate yet.
Another possibility is someone/something has changed your hosts file to include a pointer for hometheaterforum (very handy to have for often used sites if DNS stops working but can cause issues with site changes). If you are running a Windows OS you'll find the hosts file at:
Use a text editor (notepad) to open the hosts file and see if there's a line that looks something like (I put zeros in the IP as I don't know the huddler address. If the line exists it'll have the old IP for hometheaterforum):
If that line is there remove it and save the hosts file. If you are running Windows 7 you'll need to copy the file to the desktop to edit and save it. If Notepad added a .txt extension to the file, remove it and drop the edited file back in the original folder. You may have to change the ability to see known file extentions to remove a added .txt extension.
Then close and reopen your browser. A reboot shouldn't be necessary. The issue should be resolved.
