Amazon CANADA links getting broken (desktop)

From the desktop version of this site, if you post an amazon.ca (that's Canada) link, it auto-directs to amazon.com.

Example:
https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01M5JQ8SX/
(click on it, and see the URL it takes you to)

When I click on that from the desktop, it instead goes to:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M5JQ8SX...iglink21042-20
which is a DEAD link, because it doesn't exist on Amazon.com. It only exists on Amazon.CA (Canada)

Oddly, when I click that link from the MOBILE site, it goes to the right place.

Looks like DVDTalk is messing with the link (to add a referral thing?).

Please fix it.

For me, working fine. I go to Amazon.ca.

Link to a POST where this is happening? Also what device and browser are you seeing this on?

Literally happening with the post above, still.

Logged in to DVDTalk. Desktop PC. Chrome. Windows 10.
ODDLY, it doesn't happen in Microsoft Edge (logged out of DVDTalk).

haven't had a chance to try any other browsers.
When I right-click and copy the link, it gives me this:
PHP Code:
http://redirect.viglink.com/?format=go&jsonp=vglnk_148098699414917&key=71d9fc14f592a3085ee2ed65d9a66944&libId=iwctby6c010009mo000DL64hm4au&loc=http%3A%2F%2Fforum.dvdtalk.com%2Fforum-feedback-support%2F638337-amazon-canada-links-getting-broken-desktop.html%23post12962788&v=1&out=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.ca%2Fdp%2FB01M5JQ8SX%2F&ref=http%3A%2F%2Fforum.dvdtalk.com%2F&title=Amazon%20CANADA%20links%20getting%20broken%20(desktop)%20-%20DVD%20Talk%20Forum&txt=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.ca%2Fdp%2FB01M5JQ8SX%2F 
Not sure if that's at all useful.

It's not redirecting for me.

Not redirecting for me either. Sounds like it's specific to your computer (cookie issue).

Try it in your Chrome in Incognito Mode, both logged out and then logged in.

Yeah, you're right. Works as it should in incognito mode. I haven't wiped cookies in awhile, but it's doing it on my work PC and my home PC. Oh well, my bad I guess.
