Whenever I'm on any page (actor, title, etc.) and I click on a forum link or a photo, I get sent to the IMDB Pro sign up page. I used to have a Pro account years ago but cancelled it. I don't know what a forum post has to do with it and why IMDB keeps sending me there..

Try clearing your cache and browser history.

If this doesn't work can you test the situation using a different web browser?

Not sure what else to suggest without first making sure the issue is not either a cache problem or a web browser bug.

I knew it had come up before but could not remember what turned out to be the problem...it looks like no one ever found out what the problem was....

See: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/no_access_to_any_picture_on_imdb_because_of_not_renewing_my_...

It looks like not using reference view is a work around, if you are also using that view.

Do you have "https everywhere" or a similar plug-in installed (or even a browser option)? From the problem description it appears that you are trying to load regular IMDb pages over https which is not (yet) supported.

Thank you, Col Needham. That fixed the problem!

I turned off HTTPS Everywhere and I'm no longer sent to the IMDB Pro sign-up page.
