New windows/stores pening when shopping in Amazon


Recommended Posts

While logged in to my Amazon.com account and shopping, I have an issue that's been going on for a few months. If I click on an item, a new window will open that's related to the items, but is a completely different store. For instance, while just now shopping for nonstick drip pans in my Amazon account, I clicked on an item to view the details and a new window for Walmart.com opened up with this URL:

 https://www.walmart.com/search/?query=non+stick+drip+pans&&adid=22222222224417579775&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=e&wl1=s&wl2=c&wl3=74560708621401&wl4=kwd-74560791798629:loc-190&wl5=74244&wl6=&wl7={loc_interest_ms }&wl14=non stick drip pans&veh=sem&msclkid=390bb13739fa1b39989bed24de332d00


I'm using Windows 10 on a Dell Inspiron 15, Google Chrome Version 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit). I just checked my Chrome settings and it appears I have popups blocked (I think they could definitely make this more clear - ticking the white button turns it blue and Allowed appears) and I have Ads blocked too. 

This is an ongoing problem but is especially annoying this time of year when I'm shopping often at Amazon.

I'd appreciate help in solving this issue.

Now that I'm looking, it appears most of these links start off with https://feed.cf-se.com then switch over to another store, I'm guessing where this company makes commissions. Help please!
