eddie, maybe your domain was mis-spelled, but this is what I see when I click on your link:
*GREAT NEWS*
THE DOMAIN YOU HAVE ENTERED IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
Herts, England United Kingdom

eBay automatically emails anyone who registers a domain name with "eBay" in it, threatening legal action.

The ownership, use or sale of a domain name containing the eBay name is not permitted because it is likely a trademark infringement.


It sounds like eBay has never heard of "fair use", but would you want to go to court against them over it?

This would explain why the ebayfox.com name is no longer active.

By the way, eBay is planning to do a Firefox version of their own toolbar, and there are a few other eBay Firefox add-ons.

You're right. I've heard about it long time ago and I forgot about it.
Someone else is selling this domain anyway, not eBay
