Pictures and Author Bio are no longer showing in an Instructable? Answered

Recently, I've been unable to click on the thumbnail pictures underneath the main picture in each step of an Instructable. I've always been able to view all the pictures, but now I can't. I also don't see the Author Bio anymore, when it used to be below the title of the Instructable. Does anyone know what could be wrong? I've tried both Google Chrome and Mozilla, but nothing works.

It's a bug several people have reported it.

It's OK for me so try clearing your computer cache to give a clean start.

Sorry to be so clueless, but how would you go about clearing the computer cache?

Hmm.

I've read about the bug... and apparently some people say it's due to the AdBlocker add-on. I don't trust disabling it for Instructables, though, so it's a no-go.

I figured out to clear the cache, but that doesn't seem to work either.

Finally, someone mentioned enabling doubleclick.net and googleadservices.com in NoScript, and it works. I can see the author bio and the pictures again. But the thing that troubles me is that previously, I didn't need to enable these two sites for the pics and bio to work in Instructables. Could someone explain why that has changed? I would really prefer not to enable these two sites to see the pictures and bio.

Thanks!
