No cookies?!

I made an account two days ago, but can't sign in at home. I'm currently using my college computer, which logs in fine. Some other login problem posts mentioned cookies not being enabled, however Instructables doesn't seem to be trying to set any cookies. I set FireFox to auto accept all cookies, but when I check the cookie log, there are none from Instructables. Other websites work fine. I checked this computer and Instructables is setting cookies. I also tried IE7 and same problem. Anyone have any idea what's happening?

Cookie, cookie, come and get a cookie! CLOSED

It's not a big secret that I really like cookies. I often make double or triple batches just so that I have plenty to give away to friends and coworkers and neighbors and whatnot.But hey! Now with patches I can give all of you a cookie! It'll be a patch, but if you want one just make a new comment below asking for a cookie and you'll get one! UPDATE: Over three dozen cookies given out so far. If you want one, let me know soon as the cookie jar will close at 4:30!UPDATE 2: OK, since so many of you asked so nicely after the cookie jar was closed I opened it again this morning to give out some more. But that's it! It's now done for good!

Not accepting 3rd party cookies at preventing commenting

I've turned off acceptance of all 3rd party cookies in my browser. Because of this, I am not able to post a comment to anyone's Instructable. I get how analytics help drive your business, so you need to use a server based solution vs using client-side (using 3rd party click/data capture) to do so [I'm accepting cookies from your domain]. Blocking 3rd party cookies is pretty common.  [Mozzilla was even considering making it the default, before enough lobbyists have complained that Congress sent a letter to Mozzilla asking that they not do that] Accepting the quantserve cookie, as a REQUIREMENT for commenting is just not kewl!

Page redirecting problem?

Hey, I'm wondering if anyone else is having this problem.  I use Firefox 3.6.16 at work, and since last Friday have been getting this message on the main index page: The page isn't redirecting properly Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.   *   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept           cookies. I have all cookies enabled.  I've disabled them, refreshed, logged out, rebooted, and reeneabled in so many combination's that my head now hurts and my computer is dizzy.  I had another tab open to an 'ible, and am able to browse through various forums that way (thus I'm able to post this), but whenever I go to the main index page I get this error.  I tried using Internet Explorer (shudder), but it just gives the ever-helpful "can't connect" standard IE error message.  I haven't tried using FF4 yet (I have that running at home).

Website doesn't recognize users never recognizes me from one visit to the next. Every time I click on a link in an email (unless I already have instructables windows open, and I'm logged in) it doesn't know who I am.   Granted, this is bordering on a feature request, but I do think that it should be considered a bug.  Since pretty much every other website that isn't a bank account recognizes the user, I would call it a bug unless there is a reason for forcing the user to log in on every visit. Thanks EDIT (Aug 21, 2012): I was using Windows XP with Firefox when I had this problem, and it was consistent for at least a year across different machines.  Since posting this question, instructables hasn't asked me to log in again!  Maybe it's because I switched to Chrome a couple of days ago, or maybe it was just me.    Since this is not a typical, please never mind.

Hot Cookie Lava Cake Dough

I've been making chocolate lava cakes and they start to get boring after a while. I'm going to try to bake soft cookies now to see if I can find a cookie recipe with a soft cookie texture so does anybody know any things where instead of just pure chocolate I can make a cookie crusting for the chocolate lava cakes? Just a small amount to press against the sides and bottom. Usually serve it with vanilla ice-cream.

Non Stop! Caramel cookies recipe

Hi! About 6 moths ago I was visiting family in Germany, and my uncle had these weird cookies (well not really weird, unusual) called Non Stop! Caramel;=/sweet/&f;=all/ Now, I live in Finland, and these cookies aren't available here, so I was wondering if anyone had ever tried to mimic these or had some suggestions what recipes would work. I don't have a lot of free time, so trying out a hundred recipes is not an option. There is another thing. Since then, I have also become a vegan, so if I were to find these in a store, I couldn't eat them, so I sorta need to do this myself. So if anyone has eaten these cookies and knows a recipe for something in the same direction, or can make up a copycat recipe, it would be much appreciated. The recipe doen't have to be vegan btw, I can convert it myself. Thanks in advance,  - Kalle

Tasteless, textureless chocolate chip cookies, EVERY first batch I make? Answered

For the last 3 times I have tried making chocolate chip cookies, the first round that I slide in the oven has come out completely tasteless and textureless. No light buttery taste, no vanilla taste, not even a vaguely burnt taste. And they aren't crispy or chewy either. They're definitely cooked all the way through, and I follow the recipes exactly. The 2nd batch normally turns out slightly better, but I couldn't tell you why. I am a rather bad cook, but that doesn't explain why all the cookies suck. :P To quote one of my friends, "This will haunt me for the rest of my life. I don't know how to even describe this cookie, as there is nothing to describe about it." My mother once made a vague comment about the temperature of the oven, but I'm still not sure how to fix it. It's probably not the recipe; I've used several different ones that are all fairly standard and similar.

&quot;Repeating Image&quot; comments bug and a workaround

Several regular users, including myself, have noticed an annoying bug in replying to comments. The two comments before were copied from the same Forum topic, and were made about 1 minute apart. As you see, the second comment has the same image attached as the first, even though gmjhowe did not select add image the second time.This bug is easily reproducible. Reply to a comment in either a forum topic or an I'ble, and attach an image. Now scroll around and reply to a different comment on the same page. You'll see your image appear when you post the second reply. The error, I believe, is that the cookie(s) created by I'bles to save the sate of the first reply is not completely erased when the user completes the posting. The information about attached images is preserved, and leaks through to a second comment on the same page.The workaround I have found turns out to be really simple. Leave the page (for example, by using the Back feature of your browser), and return to the same page by following a hyperlink. Don't just use the browser's Forward feature; that will preserve state and the bug will occur. By following the link to the page "fresh," I'bles will erase the previous cookie completely, and create a new one in anticipation of what you might do on the "new" page.It would be good if Rachel or somebody could fix the cookie-handling bug so this doesn't continue to happen. It's a real pain if you've just written a long second comment, possible with formatting, and then find unexpected images attached to it.
