    I do the following things:

    Change IP
    private firefox browsing (so that means no cookies)
    NO flash installed (so.. no flash cookies)
    I've tried a User Agent changer

    HOWEVER, a website I'm 'posting' on is still recognizing me and linking all of my stuff somehow! I didn't change anything else other than using a different computer and it didn't link that 'post' even though it was on the same connection and same everything else.

    So they aren't tracking me by ip, cookies, flash cookies or user agent. What else is there?!?

    (Just in case your wondering, this is not CL or anything like that)

    Try changing/spoofing your mac address. I remember I thought I was blacklisted one time from somewhere and it turns out I was in a way, but not by IP. This was a few years ago so I don't know if the software is still around or updated or anything like that, although I did use it on windows 7. Anyway the one I used back then was called Smac 2.0 I believe, but I'd imagine there's probably tons out there to choose from. If you google around about mac address spoofing I'm sure there will probably be a ton of results. If you're 100% it's none of the things you listed then I would definitely check there next. Hope it helps and good luck.

    I knew someone was going to mention MAC address, but from my understanding , the MAC address is NEVER seen by any websites. Its only seen throughout your local network.

    I don't know nearly enough about networking to say with 100% certainty, but I can give you an example. Years ago I was messing around with AOL, that's the network I was referring to in my first post there. Well they had blacklisted my mac addy so I couldn't login to the client, but also, I couldn't access any AOL owned websites either. I had a static IP so I thought I was stuck, but a friend of mine suggested I spoof my mac address, and after I did I was able to get back to the sites and also use the client again. Like I said I really don't know a ton about networking to know the ins and outs as to why it worked the way it did in that case but if you haven't tried it yet, it wasn't hard, and it's def worth a shot.

    Try disabling JavaScript under options on FF. That has worked for me in the past.

    I'm fairly certain that I have tried, however I think I lose some functionality that I need when I disable javascript.

    That is true. For me, I toggle it off/on manually and turn it on only when needed (say, having to upload pictures). This may or may not work for the site you are going on. It works for me on certain sites. Good luck.

    I have no flash installed on that computer and Java is installed on the computer but disabled in the addons/extensions in firefox... So it can't be either of those things

    Yes, I know. Java is not enabled in the browser.
