Odd IE9 behavoir, do you experience the same?

    Ok, so, have IE9 and have search engine to Bing.

    And type "linkedin" in the bar. It should auto linkedin.com, which is fine. But, I want to make sure I get the proper place using search engine instead, so I typed "linked in " to make sure the result is from Bing.

    The odd thing happens. My Bing result appears for less than a second and I ended up in linkedin.com .

    If I type "linked in " from MSN or Bing.com, they show result page. But, if I did the same in my IE9 bar, it will flash Bing result and direct me to Linkedin.com right away. If I press back, I can see Bing for less than a second and get redirected again.

    What is going on?

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    You're seeing the "I'm feeling lucky" behaviour of bing. If the top search is much better (according to bing) than the other results, it'll bounce you to the first link rather than making you click it manually.
