Is anyone else having trouble accessing parts of the site like tryin to write a review or parts of your account pages? I have to use an alternate method than my normal IE browser to get the pages to come up properly.

Edit: I discovered that for some reason, the links to "Your Account" and "Your orders" on my page, the Kindle specific section, have the wrong link which is still an Amazon link. The link just mentions product testing in the URL for some reason. I hope someone fixes it. The links on the Amazon home page for the same headings in the drop down menu on the right are correct, though. Instead of the correct URL for these 2, it would have something like That URL won't display a page and acts like it's a browser error.

Jwb52z - I saw on the news today that IE has experienced a huge hack. It's recommended to use a different browser like Chrome or Firefox.

I saw the same thing on the internet about this. It is hitting the newer versions of IE.

I'm using IE 11 and I'm not having problems getting to Your Account or Your orders. I'm not sure from your description exactly what "my page" is so I'm not sure I'm checking the correct links.

I'm thinking he's talking about the link at the top of the page that goes to XXXX's Amazon and all the links on that page work for me even on IE8 - the only things that won't work for me on IE8 (work mandated) are Manage Your Devices and some script on the Wish Lists

".. IE8 (work mandated).."

You must work for the same company as I do... We have to use IE8 too.

Well, I have to admit that I was able to get both Chrome and Firefox on mine (albeit Firefox in French) since I have to access a lot of digital datarooms and IE8 wouldn't allow files with certain extensions to be opened or downloaded. It did take management approval and a valid reason, though.

It's very odd in that we're using Windows 7, but with IE8 instead of IE9

its pretty much a gov't thing, if you work for them - we don't even have anything else installed

I was referring to the links under/in the "Your Account" menu on the top right of the page. The first two were not working for me on the Kindle Store front page as they were linking to some address with the words "product testing" in them.
