I was able to get to the edit page from that link without an exception. I made an edit ("test edit") and deleted it. Are you still seeing this? (Do you have the Firefox Greasemonkey "Allsteps" script installed? That has caused edit problems in the past, and it's not necessary any more since we added the ALLSTEPS configuration option.)

Yep. I did use the Greasemonkey script, but now that is inactive I can edit my Instructable. Thanks for your help!
