If you are having trouble with the Instructables website, try using Firefox

Officially, we support Firefox, IE6, and IE7. Unofficially, everyone here uses the site on a daily basis with Firefox. If there are bugs specific to another browser, we often won't notice them right away. This is particularly true of Safari, where lots of things are known not to work. So, if you are having trouble with something (uploading images, operations within your library), try doing the same thing with Firefox and confirm that it's not a browser specific bug. Thanks for your patience as we aim to make everything work perfectly all the time!

Since the last comment here is from 2009, I'm wondering if this is monitored.
Here goes...
I made some changes to video handling in Firefox.
Playing videos was choppy until I changed everything over to different player.
I didn't change anything other than videos to the player.
As far as I know, no Javascript things were changed.
But since I changed the settings I can't change between pictures on a step.
What do you think I did?
What happens when I click pictures?
What is the process?
I'll post this around to see if anyone knows what I did...
see my reply to your same question here
In my case, I'm just looking at an Instructable and trying to look at the other pictures under main one on a step...
I restored all the video handling settings to their defaults.
No change, I can't click over to the next picture on a step.
The orange border lights up when I mouseover it but when I click it it does not change to the next picture.
I finally found that Adblock was the problem. I disabled Adblock for Instructables only and now I can open the additional images.

I use Opera 10 and it works perfectly (and a little faster, I think).

Hi! I am new to this community and made an instructable. My instructable for some unknown reason will not show up in results when searching. I added many tags, published it, and even searched for it when logged out. If it helps here is a link...


Any help would be appreciated thanks!!!
