Favorites confusion

I can't "favorite" any more 'ibles!  I have 80 already, but I can't find where there was a limit.  I also tried to go back and clean out some that weren't so favorite, but for some reson I couldn't "un-fav" any.  Help!

The Favorite button was still broken for me until I allowed scripts from quantserve.com, googleadservices.com, and facebook.net. googleadservices.com doesn't show up until quantserve.com is allowed, and facebook.net doesn't show up until after googleadservices.com is allowed. The author box shows up at the top of 'ibles now too.

It seems tied specifically to facebook.net I can still block their tracking with ghostery and Do Not Track Plus though so I guess it's not so bad I guess but I hope these get untangled from facebook soon
The issue lies in the way the site loads scripts. The favorite button script is almost the last thing that the page loads, and any sort of ad or script blocking plugin will cause script loading to halt before it gets to the favorite button.

Easiest workaround is to add Instructables.com to the blocker's whitelist.
My fault for not specifying because I thought it was a given but I already have had instructables.com's scripts whitelisted and for quite some time. The favorite button used to work with just that but not now
I see that I'm a couple of weeks late chiming in, but I've just started having this problem (again!). It seems to come and go as it pleases.

I'm running Windows XP Pro with Firefox 12.

Disabling AdBlock Plus has been no help.

I have the same problem and it's not Adblock that's causing it for me - that works fine - it's the Facebook Disconnect add-on (for Chrome & Firefox). If I have it enabled, the Favourite button doesn't load. Hmmm....

I've been having this same problem for a long time now; if I log in, the favorite-button disappears. I am currently allowing everything on this page (and for some reason I have NEVER seen the "ratings", it only came to me when my fiance used his account once to favorite and rate one of my 'ibles)

I'm using FF 12.0 on Windows 7.

I'm having the same problem. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with Google Chrome and adblock. However, if I open a webpage with Firefox, I'm able to see the Fav button.

I'm still seeing the same thing too. The favorite button disappears upon login.

I wanted to let you know our coding team has just been notified about the issue with favorites and they're going to be working on fixing it as soon as they finish their current projects.
Awesome! Thank you very much! :)
