Can't Favorite Instructables or Follow People

This has been happening the past few days intermittently... when I try to click an instructable to favorite it, or try to follow a user, the button does nothing. Doesn't matter if I am on the users page. I've tried refreshing both tutorial pages and user pages to favorite or follow (respectively) to no avail. I've also tried logging out.

I have a different problem. I can see my favorites list when I am using Google Chrome on my PC. But, on my instructables android app my favorites list doesn't show up. However, if you search and find an isntructable I have favorited before shows the pink heart sign. Whay my list is not showing up on the Android App. (My phone is a galaxy S7 Edge and I have reset my cache, logged out and logged in to the app, but no luck)

I can't favorite anything either. I cleared my cache as suggested in the Answers section of the community and now the button will show as Favorited but it won't show up my favorites list. I'm using Windows 7, Google Chrome web browser.

It would help if you say what operating system & browser you are using, and especially any script blocking or modifying add-ons, as they can sometimes affect the way some parts of the site work.

I am using Chrome in OS X 10.9.3. I have Ad Block Plus, Disconnect, and AVG Privacy Fix.

It's odd because I can favorite certain things and follow some people but it seemingly randomly doesn't work at times.

Does switching off the adblock help?

I've tried switching it off a few times. It doesn't seem to make a difference.

Hmm, I'm out of ideas. Best leave it to the development team.
