Link takes straight to login page?

It's been a while since I've been here, so I might have missed something. But recently my Fastmail bookmark takes me straight to the login page instead of the home page. This is new behavior, but I don't recall seeing anything describing this.

Is this intentional behavior by Fastmail, or is my computer acting wonky?

When I google search "Fastmail", I click on the search results and it takes me to Fastmail's home page, but then when I try and save that as a bookmark, when I click on the bookmarked link it will instead take me to the login page.

I feel like I'm going crazy because I don't ever remember it doing this.

I just experimented with this in Chrome browser, and it happens as you describe.

I checked out the saved bookmark, which points to "https://www.fastmail.com/", but goes to the login page when clicked.

Not that it bothers me anyway.

thank you for confirming this! I'm just glad it's not just me. I'm overly cautious about malware/ site redirections.

It doesn't bother me as well, saves me a step really. As long as that's the way it's supposed to behave.

Yes, it's an intended change. We figured that people who are already logged in don't need to visit the marketing pages first, they'd prefer to save a click and go straight to the account chooser.
