How to fix when your browser goes to the wrong website ... Website url goes to Yahoo! on Google Chrome, but goes to proper website on Safari on a desktop Mac.

Thank you for your patience.
Our engineers are working quickly to resolve the issue.

Checking the source, we saw the following clue ...

<!-- Not Found on Accelerator: -->

The cache somehow incorrectly associated the website "" with a Yahoo! web address.

The situation was corrected by clearing the cache on Google Chrome.
