Why does google url add some letters at the end after I press enter?

I typed in google.com into url bar of internet explorer browser or firefox browser, after pressing enter url bar automatic redirect to https://www.google.com/#spf=1588302839499 , see this example video of internet explorer View: https://imgur.com/BzOTlj7


I typed in google.com into url bar of chrome browser or edge browser or opera browser, after pressing enter the url bar shows https://www.google.com/ which seems normal.

What does those text #spf=1588302839499 mean?

Please tell me what is happening? Did I get some malware virus or is it normal?

Thanks a lot.

It's normal when you use the HTTPS google.
Problem only happens in internet explorer browser or firefox browser. In the url box I only type in google.com and then press enter, I did not type in https or anything else.
Why chrome browser or edge browser or opera browser no problem?
