PDF download failure- Specific Instructable only Answered

I have been trying to download a specific Instructable (5 Ways to Remove a Stripped Screw by mikeasaurus). I am a Pro member. I have tried two browsers (Firefox 51.0.1, 32-bit) and Microsoft Edge 38.14393.0.0. In Edge, I get this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Message>Access Denied</Message>

In Firefox, this:

Other Instructables work and download just fine. Any thoughts?

Hi there,

Ack, sorry about that! Give it a try now and it should work.

If for any reason it still doesn't generate a PDF for you, here's a direct link https://www.instructables.com/json-api/viewPdf?id=EDR3E13IZ6C6U2I&forceOverwrite;=true

I tried it about 45 minutes ago and it worked. Thanks for the help!

Kiteman, just tried it again and it worked from within Firefox. I have been trying this repeatedly since the Instructable was published, to no avail. Why it works now probably involves dark magik and smoldering incense.
