Firefox google.com problems

  1. I've been using Firefox for a while now and have not had any problems until now.
    When I type in google.com to my address bar (google.com is also set as my start page) Firefox redirects it to http://www.shoprogers.com/cgi-bin/index2.html (rogers is my Internet Provdier) I find this so strange. Everything else works fine, google.com works fine when I use IE. When I use the google search box in Firefox it takes me to the google results page as it should and if I click on a link to google it also works fine. It only seems to happen when I actually type google.com into the address bar.
    Does anyone have any idea about what could have happened?
