Clicking on links in update emails always sends me to sendgrid.com and not OCN.

You have a virus or some other type of malware that is redirecting your browser.

Update the virus definitions of whatever antivirus you're using and run a full scan.

Thanks for the response, but I have tried that already. My virus definitions are automatically updated every day by ESET and I have already done full scans with ESET Nod32, malwarebytes, and spybot. They have detected nothing. This behavior does not occur when I change my default browser to Chrome or IE, only when links open in FIrefox. I do not want to use Chrome or IE, though, so I will just stop my email subscriptions to OCN if this cannot be resolved.

My pop email client is Thunderbird. Although, I don't believe it is an issue with Thunderbird because, as I said above, if I change my default browser to Chrome or IE and click on any links in my OCN emails, they open the proper page at OCN.

Sendgrid is our email provider, so don't worry, there isn't a virus situation going on here.

Subscription emails links take a couple of steps before landing you on the forum page. The link you see in the email body directs to the email provider, letting us track open rates for emails, and from there immediately redirects to something like this (for your link above):

http://www.overclock.net/t/1443591/asus-gtx-590?utm_campaign=subscription&utm_source=subscription_digest&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=website&utm_source=sendgrid.com&utm_medium=email#post_21210431

This is the link to the forum thread that corresponds to the subscription you have (with some extra data in the querystring to let us see who is visiting the site from email sources).

Somehow, it looks like this redirect isn't happening. I'm going to offer the hypothesis that it is either ABP or NoScript causing the issue. Would you mind trying the link above with either of those disabled?
