In firefox, everything works great: works fine, and redirects to the www site.

In IE8, mysteriously, displays an error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

I checked the server headers here: - and it reports a 301 redirect.

What is going on?

IE 8 works fine here, it gets redirected to www are you sure it's not a local issue?

Thanks for checking, sorry for the false alarm! I think it was related to the Bing search bar in IE8... and since not a lot of people use it... I decided not to worry. – Summer Jan 29 '11 at 2:40
