Firefox - website in history that was 301 permanently moved

Post by throwaway50 » Sun Jun 01, 2014 7:48 pm

On my firefox new tab page a history page showed up. The url was one I recognized but the picture given for that page was just a blank page that said 301 permanently moved. This site was not permanently moved so is this an attack on my browser? XSS or something? I use adblock plus, https everywhere and noscript 2.6.8.26 add on.

What is the URL?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

The thing is I know there's a hacker stalking me. That's why the 301 permanently moved stuck out so much.
