Can't confirm. Tested with Build 770 32-bit public and 773 64-bit donor.

Try to upgrade FC and web browser to latest version, and check the browser settings, extensions, blockers...

BTW it should open this link:

http://freecommander.com/en/donation/

My FreeCommander XE 2018 Build 770 32-bit public on Windows 7 x64 with Firefox 56.0.2 (64-bit)
puts the

www.freecommander.com/pl/fc_donation_pl.htm

in the address bar where it says:
Nie znaleziono

Przepraszamy, lecz nie można znaleźć żądanej strony . Być może pomoże wyszukiwania.
And I did this also in the

Code: Select all

FreeCommander.exe /N /NewIni=%FcAppDataPath%\Settings\FreeCommanderTest.ini /NoPlugins /Lng=English
mode. The result is the same

Yes- my Firefox is outdated; but I can not see how it can have anything to do with the link that is requested by FC

Weird, it looks it's not Firefox, but I get always the link to English page (above), also with non-English languages, same version, same parameters.

Could can try to search for "fc_donation_pl" - containing text in the FC install folder and in the Settings folder.

You can also try to download the latest portable version, unpack to a new folder and start, perhaps you have some outdated file in your install or settings folder.

It could be also some redirect issue, I don't know, it looks it's redirected in my version from www.freecommander.com/fc_donation_en.htm

1] I installed the portable version. There was no change


2] I did not find anywhere a file containing

fc_donation_pl


3] I deleted the

places.sqlite

file from the folder of Firefox, which is to my knowledge the one and truly method of deleting your history in that browser. There was no change


4] I chose other webbrowser as a default one: Internet Explorer 11.0.9. I do not normally use this highly outdatd IE, only in situations like this, for test purposes. It has no history of browsing, because it is wiped out clean every time I restore my system from an image copy. No change


Am I in Matrix or something?

This is really strange, if you used a portable version, you must have the same files, settings...

Perhaps it could be page re-direct, antivirus, antispyware or malware, I don't know. :roll:
