Webform submission redirect

I am trying to use webform module for a fairly uncomplicated task, where the user fills in details and then after submission the form redirects to another page.

What I discovered is that all my existing webforms and this one are automatically redirecting to the google website.

https://www.google.ca/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=EXc8V4KpE6iC8Qe-tYGYDw&gws_rd=ssl

Interestingly the URL is sending cookie to the browser, so the original URL is probably google.com.

Help needed in overriding form elements in Ubercart

I don't know whether this question is relevant for the group, but I asked it on StackExchange and it sank like a stone. Khalid said it would be okay to ask here, so I am doing so.

The long writeup is on StackExchange: http://drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/199743/alter-element-info-and-... . That has a bunch of details I am skimming over in this writeup.
