Javascript bugs in FF and IE Answered

I'm experiencing multiple bugs in Instructables, most JavaScript related.

FF 11.0, have these same problems with FF10.2?. Instructables on safe list @ NoScript

1. Images look ok in instructables, switching between them in steps do not work at all. I click on the second image. It should replace the first one in the same container, nothing happens.
2. Can not vote. The stars are simply not there anymore.
3. There are 4 fingers white gap above, and 3 fingers white gap below the instructable title / photo-step row

FF Javascript error console shows no errors.
Things like Favoring/Unfavoring, commenting works fine.

IE 8.0.6

1. Same problem as previous #1, yet clicking on the second image opens the image thumbnail directly in a new window.
2. IE displays "Errors on page" with this text:

"Webpage error details

I bet some script near the bottom of scripts is killing the rest of scripts, this is why some scripts work and some don't.
Can provide more info if needed.


The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

Aye, yet I have these problems for about 2+ months now. It really kills much of the joy I get from Instructables.
