    Here is the situation.

    I'm looking to grab a few card prices off of tcgplayer
    but I get blocked eventually.

    from selenium import webdriver
    driver = webdriver.Firefox()
    driver.get("google url")
    1. I open up a new firefox window with selenium using above code.

    2. I browse using a normal firefox window as well ( opened via firefox shortcut)

    3. if I browse (by hand mind you) long enough from any one ip my selenium browser starts getting blocked as a "bot" (suspicious activity detected page redirect) I HATE YOU DISTIL NETWORKS

    4. I may still browse tcgplayer with no problems using the firefox normal shortcut

    **Side note** to get selenium blocked from a specific IP all it takes are a few quick url openings from my code, after that its blocked every time
    if anyone can find out why this happens I will forever remember your name. (I know right)

    Throttle your clicks then (i.e. put a delay, like a human).
