I ve got an odd bug the sceen looks like this, macbook pro OSX 10.6 running firefox. 3.6.10 mozzila 5 there where several kids at school whose screen look like this, but mine was fine. (firefox 8.0.1) They are not members and it didnt matter if they viewed one step or click on see all steps.
I will get them to update firefox but it probably something you should know about.

I was interested to read "better determine where your problem is". Was this well thought out or did you mean to say our instead?

It's the user who is having the problem, so the problem belongs to them :-) It's (possibly) Instructables which has a bug, but the user can't specify what the bug actually is, except under special circumstances (e.g., I was able to find the bug causing the "magic floating N" by looking at the page source).

I prefer shared responsibilities, because if users have a problems with the site then the site has a problem with whom it is dependent on.
