[ubuntu] 10.04, Google Chrome redirects http to localhost

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm new here so apologies if this is the wrong forum but this is an odd problem so it wasn't clear where to go. At some point today Google Chrome started redirecting all http requests to localhost (I get the test page from my local Apache install). https works fine, as does Firefox I was playing around with some network settings trying to get Android USB tethering to work so it's possible, even likely, I broke something, although otherwise everything seems to be working fine. Also, prior to this problem arising I accepted an update to Google Chrome so that may be an issue instead or as well (Hardware)
