Ubuntu / Firefox / GMail - redirect to

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Firefox 14.0.1, GMail. When I click on a link to a forum in gmail, type in an address of a known website in the address bar, or even click on the CrowdSupport link on the Bigpond main site, they all take me to Bigpond's I rang tech support but they do not support Linux or Firefox.


Any ideas?
