Links in static HTML pages


I have strange issue with links to other pages or external web sites in static HTML pages like the 'About Us' page, the FAQ, the 'Disclaimer', etc. For some reason CS-Cart insist on prepending the domain name to the URL, so a link (href) to the Google web site becomes"" instead of, and a link to an internal page becomes"/my-category/" instead of just /my-category/. The same thing happens with images. What could be the reason for this? Our CS-Cart version is 3.0.5.

Thank you.
