I should also note that pressing and holding does not clear that screen - it just pops right back up again and again and again.  This makes your site unusable.  Also the word "cookies" was dropped from the above post.

In my case, your suggested solution does not work for iOS on an iPad. Please read my other post that details the issue. Looks like there are multiple posts regarding this “press and hold”, loss of the notification icon, site keeps switching from mobile to desktop version.

It's now 9+ months later and this problem still remains unresolved. Please reply and discuss the outcome of the ticket raised months ago "with our Captcha Service Provider". This is outrageous and unacceptable.

The improvements are WAY better and captcha is no longer occurring. Minor glitches between notification in mobile vs desktop mode with icon sometimes not populating, but at least I am not reloading all the time as before

"The improvements are WAY better and captcha is no longer occurring."


WRONG!!! Totally bogus statement. This problem has been ongoing for months and months. It has not been fixed. Someone at SA is not doing their job and management refuses to address the problem. Pathetic.

Good news is that hovering the mouse over a ticker almost always gets pop up information now, bad news is still press and hold after press and hold after press and hold ...

This appears to have cleared up for me - have not seen it for at least 2 weeks.

Not fixed. As soon as I opened three SA articles in a short - minute or two - period of time I got the Press and HOOOLLLDD  Reference ID: d38fce10-18e0-11eb-9dfb-859fe3f601cc  I use the Opera Browser.

Thanks for the reference ID, I created a ticket.

OK, so now 8+ months later, what's the status of the ticket? Problem NOT fixed!!!

Same thing. This needs to be disabled. SA doesn't treat unregistered users like this. There's no reason I should ever see this.

I created a ticket for allison's problem below because she provided a reference ID.  If you provide a reference ID, I can create a ticket for your issue as well.

As of yesterday this has started happening for me, very annoying and even if I "click and hold" I keep getting the same challenge over and over. It is preventing access to my paid subscription of The REIT Forum.

"Presss & Hold" if you have an ad-blocker enabled you may be blocked from proceeding. Please disable it and refresh.

Hi guys, I see you had the same problem as me. I'm using Windows 10 64bit and really reported the problem to the support team. The problem started 3-4 weeks ago.

After reading that the problem was reported by various users months ago, I can't really understand how this problem happens now.

I will wait a few days more and cancel my subscription if the error is not resolved.

PLEASE FIX!!!

Hi guys,

Did you get a response to resolve this issue? It seems like these guys aren't interested in helping their subscribers. I like the SeekingAlpha subscription but the blocker is really stupid and their support is extremly disappointed.
