Unresolved - Unable to change keywords. Answered

 
Is this just me or do others have the same problem? :-

I am unable to change the keywords of a published Instructable via the 'Author Options' box.  'Categories' and 'License' show the dropdowns, but the 'Keywords' heading only has a small white box below it.  I have tried this on 2 different machines with Firefox (currently 16), IE8 and Chrome portable, all with popup blockers / adfilter etc disabled. 

A different but similar issue:
I've just discovered that I can edit keywords on the 'publish' page of my other Instructables and 'save' the changes, but not this one.  See my comments below.

Keywords:
I can see the 'keyword' box with both Chrome and IE. Not seeing the 'author options' on your project is probably from the page not loading completely. If your script blocking add ons have been disabled then make sure you have the latest browser/JAVA installed. Then, clear your browser cache and refresh the page.

Error 401:
Admin comments on a project can produce this error.

I can see the 'author options' but it's just the 'keywords' box giving trouble.
I've now updated Java, (FF was already latest version) and fully flushed the cache / histories but still see the same small white box below 'keywords'.
All blockers are disabled.

Regarding author comments and the post I linked below - Is there a flag left set after you freed up my Instructable from the filters and then commented on it?

AHA - I should be able to change the keywords on the 'publish' page, but am getting an error message (ERROR 401: edit object ES4R2ZEH7UR831B).  I assumed it was because it was it was already published, but may be THIS.

Admin - Is Mikeasaurus' comment stopping me re-saving this?
