If in epiphany I clear all Amazon cookies, and if I am not signed in to Amazon, and I click on a Kindle title, such as "True Fiction" by Lee Goldberg, I get the hang.

I'm not sure if Amazon has some mechanism to track my browsing history, in spite of no cookes and in spite of not being signed in - or whether the ads are being randomly assigned (maybe by geographic location) and I just seem to attract ads which WebKit can't handle.  Maybe Amazon is tracking me via hostname or IP address?

On the same PC, I also have Firefox installed, and have an extensive history with Amazon - so maybe it's the .mozilla cookies, that java script (?) is somehow reading?  Or not.
