PRESS AND HOLD BUTTON PROBLEM STILL UNRESOLVED

They have known of this issue for months, and still it continues. Sometimes, I get the 'Press and Hold' window - over and over and over. Yet my settings for Java and cookies appear to be fine. Their online support has TWICE said they would report the problem and get back to me. They didn't. I called them last week and left a message. Crickets.

I'll have to cancel if it continues, which would be a shame.

Hi all,

After discussing this with our security team we learnt that many of the Press & Hold occurrences happen to users that are using selenium based automation tools and any kind of user agent spoofing.
We highly discourage this and hence have implemented this security layer.
Please check if the devices being used to access Seeking Alpha are not compromised in any way, or do not have such tools.

I hope this helps, Feel free to reach out in case further assistance is required.

I get Press and Hold issue even when I am navigating on the website multiple times. Reported this issue 2 weeks ago but this issue has not been fixed yet.

Problem just started today. I updated to IOS 15 last night if that indicates anything.

Just started for me today also.  If I refresh the page it goes away.

Go back to your original " On THe Move Page "

Ever since you switched all I get is this press and hold button, I pay fo this site and can't read the articles I pay for because I constantly am pressing and holding.

I am not willing to “press & hold” anything that feels like it could be a virus. Has Seeking Alpha acknowledged this problem?

Interesting, it just started this evening 10 November, this has not happened before and I've been on SA for a very long time. Hopefully, everyone that has had this issue, either recently, or in the past, reports it so something will have to be done about it. Last 10 minutes or so for me, done 'press and hold' twice.

There is clearly a new bug on the SA platform.    I just started getting this error today, along with many others.

This just started happening for me about 2 hours ago.  Never had it happen before.
