The Firefox team is pushing a bug fix to address an issue where the auto transport feature on certain types of sites was not functioning properly.
The bug report addresses an issue that occurs when Firefox 11’s “Auto Transport” feature is enabled on websites that contain sites with the “Auto” prefix (such as search engines).
When the site’s name starts with “autotransport” it will appear as an auto-navigation option.
For example, if a site’s site name begins with “www.example.com” it would display an “Auto-navigate to” option that would cause the browser to automatically redirect users to the appropriate site.
However, the site name “www” doesn’t have an auto transport option, and so Firefox would not display the auto navigation option.
This issue is fixed by updating the site to include an auto “Auto Transport” option.
The fix is a small one, and only applies to sites that have a “Auto Transfer” option enabled, but if you are on a Firefox upgrade, this should fix the issue.
The Firefox bug tracker has more information on the issue: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=52769 If you are using a third-party browser, you should be able to enable the auto transport option on those browsers.
If you don’t want to use a third party browser, the only workaround is to disable the auto “Transport” options from the “Settings” menu.
