it seems this problem has a long history. my reply was more a reminder for the mods to verify it was on the list of things to do. maintaining this stuff is harder than gardening!

And sometimes they are. I've found I have to check those by clicking on the "finished events" or whatever they call it. If someone pulled the plug on the BIN, or if the seller pulled the item, or it just expired, well...

I've tried it both while logged into Ebay and not; the result is the same: The redirect is to the Ebay home page for me. (I'm using IE8.)

This is evidently something different because it was not always this way. I used to be directed to the product page.

I just tried again today @ home and it worked again (yesterday I tested it at work; worked as well).

One computer's OS is Vista and the other is XP. I use Firefox on both computers (v 3.6) and have been an eBay member for too many years....

Ah - I suspect many people are using IE -

I just did a quick test - I dusted off my Internet Explorer (7.0) and lo and behold - it did *not* work.

Et vyola! It is browser specific! I use IE8, and my results lately mirror Lynn's.

Mods: There's a possible hint to give the IT guys...

Humm. Since it worked before with IE8, but not now, maybe it was one of the various browser updates that did it in.

Could be. We have a PC with IE7. Link works fine. The PC with IE8, link does not work so fine. Mac with Safari browser, link does not work so fine.

Not work so fine means it doesn't take us to the item, just to an eBay main screen.

It acts the same as IE8

Very interesting...

Maybe the powers behind eBay have stock in Mozilla heh heh...

At any rate, I'm using the latest version of Firefox and it's working fine.

Maybe it has something to do with browser security settings. It may be to prevent being auto switched to a fake site.

I'll poke around in the settings and see what I find.

I just discovered something The eBay links on the Portal don't work for me, but the ones on the Classified page do. Are the people who are reporting them as working accessing the ones on the portal or the ones in the classifieds?

I just tried accessing eBay items from both the Portal and "View Classifieds." I'm seeing the same result you are. In both Safari and IE8, if I access the eBay item from "View Classifieds," then I go straight to the item in eBay.

If I access the eBay item from the Portal (which I do most often), then in both Safari and IE8, I go to the generic eBay page.
