Yahoo DNS Helper just turned on

I just got the anoying DNS "helper" from Yahoo when I clicked on an invalid link in a PDF document (i.e. when the DNS lookup failed, I was redirected to a Yahoo search page with the fragment of what I typed).

 

I think Chrome prevents me from seeing that up until now (by searching for stuff that doesn't look like a URL).  If it doesn't get there, I don't need Yahoo trying to do it for me.


Should anyone else encounter this and want to turn it off, just visit:

(at least, that's the web link for it today).
