what is a good add on for firefox that enables touch zoom pinch and that type of stuff for windows firefox version 3.6?
Question by BIGHAIRYDUDE | last reply
None of the Instructables links are showing up on my firefox browser. What happens exactly is the website will show up, but then everything will disappear and only a blank webpage will be there. And when I mean everything disappears I mean everything down to the background colors, the logo and everything.

Have you noticed that the menu system does not appear to work with Firefox vs. 8? When I search using this method on Firefox, I never get a link to an actual instructable. Also, the adds seem to hover in the way of links. However, In IE vs. 8, the links work, but some of the text and link fields overlap. It just seems like there are some HTML programming issues that need to be addressed to make the site more navigable.

I upgraded Firefox to the newest version a week or so ago and I have been encountering problems in Google Docs and Pandora. Google Docs shows an error message (pictured below) and Pandora loads for a bit then displays an error message (also pictured below). Both sites work in Internet Explorer on the same computer. I can't find anyone else encountering this problem online. Any advice as to how to fix this? Thanks, Noah

It seems I cannot change the pictures on Instructables. I am running windows xp pro Service pack 3 on a fairly powerful Machine. I am running Firefox 9.0.1 with the latest versions of all major plugins (flash, java, wmp, vlc, etc...). However when I go onto any instructable, it seems I cannot change the pictures by clicking on the thumbnails... Tried it on about 50 different instructables, all have the same problem, tried everything i could think of to fix (disabling all extensions, restarting browser, restarting computer) EDIT: Seems only to affect Firefox, other browsers are working fine...

Firefox is controlled by robots. This is an easter egg in firefox. Just type in about:robots in firefox. Update: when you press try again, a new button appears that says please do not press this again, if you press again, there is no more button.

I don't know if it's just me or something might not be working correctly on the site: ALLSTEPS not working in Firefox. Whenever I click on an ALLSTEPS link in Firefox, the query on the url never appears in the address bar. Has anyone else had this problem? If I manually edit the query string to ?ALLSTEPS=true, then it works correctly.

Hey guys, it's been a while since I have gotten on instructables, but I intend on getting back into the swing of things. On another note, I have since downloaded firefox onto my mac and noticed an add-on called Persona. This allows the user to create / download other peoples header and footer backgrounds. I have been messing around in photoshop trying to create one of my own (featuring instructables). I am not the best at it, but I have made one and posted one there anyway. If anyone wants to use it / make it better, be my guest. The only thing I ask in return is that you tell me you made it better so that I can use it. As of this moment, the instructables header and footer haven't shown up yet, but they will soon. This is my first go at actually using the photoshop software (got it free a while ago). Post any improvements you make, or suggest some.

I can't seem to log in to the site when using Firefox 54.0.1. After clicking on the "log in" button and entering my username and password, I get redirected to the homepage. I can log in using Safari, so I don't think the issue is with my account. I also tried clearing my history and deleting my cookies, but the problem still persists. Any ideas as to what's going on? Thanks!

Well i know it's not exactly an instructible but i would be REALLLLLLLY awesome to have that search box at the top right hand corner of Firefox to search instructables! i go on instructables a lot and to be able to search something without having to go though the website would be ULTIMATE!

Hiya! I've noticed that the profile preview at the top of an instructable does not show up (see: http://imgur.com/YuuJ5) Instead, the preview shows at the bottom of the page (see: http://imgur.com/UdBRj) I've been able to reproduce this problem multiple times, and I find that it only occurs if I use Firefox--it doesn't happen in Chrome or Safari. I'm running Firefox 9.0.1 and OS X 10.6.8.

I've gotten so used to having my links, toolbars etc where they are, that i though "What would it be like to use someone else's customised Firefox?" Hence the topic. So go ahead and post a screenshot of your customised Firefox, call it a social experiment. It doesn't matter how over or under the top it is, I'm just curious to see. I'll get the ball rolling on this one...

While using firefox, if I click on all steps and it just reloads the step 1 page. It works fine in IE, as well as IE can work. This has been a problem for at least a month, probably when you switched to jump links. Please fix this as it is annoying to click through all the short steps.

Hi there, I am on a MacBook, running system 10.6.8, using Firefox v 29.0.1. When I go to various instructables (I checked out the "nettles" one and the "corroded battery terminals" cleaning one,, I cannot download the PDF. It asks me to sign in, and then asks me to sign in again, not acknowledging my having done so. When I went to the "Forums" page, the upper right hand of the site DID indicate that I was signed in. I found using Safari I could download the files I want, but I prefer to use Firefox. This has been the case for a while now, even through a few Firefox upgrades. I am assuming that others are not having the problem? Sorry to be writing to you via this means, but couldn't figure out how to do so on the "bugs" page, and it looks like no one has written on those pages for 2 years. Thanks for your help on this.

I am running Firefox 12.0. I click the link from your emails, and it takes me to the instructable page. Issue one: firefox never remembers my username. Issue 2: When I click login at the top right of page, enter my info, and click login, it never logs me in! I only see the Signup, Login and Facebook on the top right of the page. I can't access my account, and I'm not able to Favorite any articles. I couldn't even login to post this bug! I would go to the bug section, click new topic, sign in, click new topic again, and I'm brought back to the login screen. I'm also not sure if its supposed to have it or not, but the popup/splash screen to login has no "Keep me singed in" check box. Everything works fine in IE 7 though.

Does anyone here have experience with Firefox extensions? I think this would be useful.When a word is highlighted and right-clicked, on the context menu, there would be an option of "Lookup in Instructables." When clicked, it would open a new tab for Instructables, and run a search for the highlighted word. It would be similar to Wikipedia Lookup, but for iBles, not Wikipedia. Is anyone up for trying this? I know nothing about how to do it.

As of right now, some of the Ace Hardware ads are misbehaving on Firefox browsers on Macs. They're showing up where they shouldn't and sometimes replacing the whole page. We're working with them to get this fixed ASAP but it is nighttime at Ace HQ so I don't expect a solution until the morning. In the meantime, things are fine in Safari, so if you need your Instructables fix NOW, I suggest using that. No problems are reported on Windows machines. If you are seeing misplaced Ace ads, please comment with your browser & OS versions!

MacBook (13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008), OS X Yosemite Version 10.10.1 Firefox 33.1 https://www.instructables.com/id/Become-An-iPhone-Cartoonist/ or any Instructable for that matter. No screenshot When replying to a comment on an 'ible I have to click "Make Comment" twice in order for it to send. I realize that comments don't always get published because of this bug. It has happened to me on earlier versions of Firefox, as well. I now double check to be sure that my comments are sent. When creating Instructables, I always use the "Open In A New Tab" button so that my viewers don't lose my page after clicking on my links. This function does not work on my operating system. I have checked many 'ibles to see if it is isolated to just my published ones and that is not the case. The open in a new tab function does not work.

So, I have this annoying problem with Firefox... As I browse the web, opening and closing tabs, I get an accumulation of (Japanese?) characters all over the tabs at the top of the screen. It starts with one or two, but soon builds up to obscure the tabs, so that I can't find the Xs to close tabs, or even switch between them (see the screenshot). The characters occur no matter what websites I do or do not visit. It eventually gets to the point where I have to close the software to get rid of the mess. The problem has persisted through uninstall/reinstall of the browser, and the only add-ons I have running are a dictionary and McAfee site advisor. Yes, I know I could just switch to Chrome, but FF is my favourite browser. Anybody know a cure?

When using firefox 20.0 on a macbook pro i get the message "Instructables is experiencing technical difficulties! We're terribly sorry about this and we're doing our best to fix it. We'll be back online as soon as we can." However if I use Safari on the same computer at the same time the web site works,but the upload button doesn't work as the plug in says its blocked. I will try fix at this end and upload a screen shot. Ok so I updated to firefox 22.0 and it all seems to work now, that is a very strange bug.

Hello, Facebook connect doesn't work on firefox 20.0.1. O.S: Archlinux, kernel version: 3.8.7-1-ARCH. It works on chromium 26.0.1410.63 (192696). Step to reproduce: from the main page, choose facebook login from the upper right corner. Nothing happens when I click on it. If I copy the URL in a new tab, at least I get an error from facebook: "Given URL is not permitted by the application configuration.: One or more of the given URLs is not allowed by the App's settings. It must match the Website URL or Canvas URL, or the domain must be a subdomain of one of the App's domains."

When I switch pages in answers there is a 7 second delay. I'm using Firefox 3.62 and it does this on two systems running on different providers. If I go to a question page the page comes up and I don't have control of the cursor for 7 seconds. The only error message I've been able to see said there was a script that was not finished. I've checked for virus and malware. When I go back to the main questions page the same thing happens. Does instructables have a broken script?

Has anyone else been unable to get "View All Steps" to work recently in firefox? After logging in, I click on the View All Steps button on a given instructable and the page refreshes, but when it finishes, I'm still looking at only the first step. Even if I manually append "?ALLSTEPS" to the end of the url, when the page loads, "?ALLSTEPS" is cleared from the url and, again, only the first step. I'm using the latest version of firefox and have even tried disabling all my add-ons but to no avail. The functionality works as it should in IE8, but I prefer to use firefox.

My last instructable was featured, and Instructables gift me a free 3 months membership. I wanted to redeem the gift using Firefox, and I could not because there is no option "Submit" on the screen. Luckily I was able to do it from Internet Explorer, but I think that should not happen.
