Home page is changing url when page is visited

I have a computer that the default home page is set to www.google.com.  But when I am in Firefox and I go to the home page I get this url.

http://www.google.com/ap_index

I have looked at the options and the url is correct in the option.  But when I use IE with the same default home page it works.

The funny thing about this was that yesterday the issue was the other way around.  Where IE was defaulting to

http://www.google.com/ap_index

and Firefox was working.

Does anyone know what is causing this issue?

Thanks,

Gabicus

jrm213jrm213,

Thanks for the reply.  Did not know about the ap_index and TWC.  I have cleared the cache and it is working.

In IE I know how to make it always ask for a new page every time a webpage is visited.  But how do I set this up in Firefox?

Thanks
well, I would guess you could go to tools->options->network tab and reduce the size of the offline cache to 0. Or you can browse to about:config and set

browser.cache.disk.enable

to false or 0 not sure what it would want
just be careful in about:config , messing around with too much in there has been known to cause all sorts of problems...
jrm213jrm213,

Thanks.  I made the change.  If the guy does not come back to me with the same issue we will be good.

Best,

Gabicus
