Instructables login issues

The site seems to be logging me out as I am browsing the instructables. I tried to re-log in but it wouldn't let me. I am using firefox, just downloaded it to my computer last week since I saw that the site is best viewed with that browser. Really kind of annoying because then I can't view a whole instructable on one page.

Having an issue with this website, nothing seem to work except my own page. When I try to open classes or anything else I get only a blank white page. Using my laptop, firefox and win 8.

If this is continuing, drop an email to service@instructables.com, and the team there will look into it for you.

If you're using a Mac, you can try this. It worked for me when I set it to Firefox for Mac.
many problems trying to login first time.  Manually added instructables.com & www.instructables.com to cookie exception list in FF (allow for session).  also deleted everything after php? in login address

 I too was suffering from this problem, but I recently made the switch to Google Chrome Browser and that seems to have solved the issue. Hope this helps someone else...

Using MSN, I'd get logged out every time I'd try to reply to a comment. I'm able to remain logged in with IE. I sent an email to the Instructables Robot going on a week ago, but apparently it malfunctioned before it could reply.
Let me see how many things I can remember to report to help you people.

Normally using IE8 but now FF on XP.

FF cannot log me in from the top right page link. Even if you see the you are loged in it keeps asking you to log in. I did managed to login and stay loged from the comment pop-up window by disabling the remember me box. The paste or Ctr+V does not work inside the comment box. If you try to add an image then it will tell you that you need to log in first!!!

Also you cannot add any image with a comment or a reply but only text with IE8 and Chrome. At least these two keep you logged in.

With IE8 it's obvious that there is an incompatibility with the web design because things keep moving around i.e. the orange ribbon with the search on the footer.

Ok , that's all what I can remember for now.

Thanks
 
P.S. when I tried to post this comment with FF it asked me to login again and after it trough me out so I am posting it again with IE8
Update:
Today I was able to upload images on a reply only by using chrome.
Did nothing or change nothing from my end.

Also noticed that the spell check only works for me in chrome on IE8 not in FF I can say cause I cannot login now whatever I do (keeps asking me to log in)

Are you accepting cookies from instructables.com?  You don't need to accept all cookies (in particular, not from the advertisers!), but the I'bles uses a cookie on your machine to recognize that you're logged in as you move from page to page.

Yes, I am accepting cookies from instructables.com. I only seem to have issues with they system logging me out when I am using mozilla. I am using explorer right now and haven't had any issues being logged out.
