Hey guys. I figured it out, that if I enable @@||connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js the images will work again. But I really don't understand, why Instructables.com is taking scripts from facebook.

I have Firefox 10.0.2 as browser but the thumbs ( with the extra visual information) will not enlarge.
I have disabled ABP.
To me those thumbs are a need in explaining what I read.
I hope there will be a solution soon for this problem for I enjoy reading and trying out Instructables.

If you are able to help me on this I would like that.

Can you provide a screen-capture of the page when you're experiencing this problem?

If I understand the problem correctly, some members have reported that the alternate thumbnails on Instructables are not opening up to larger images. Although there is a work around for Firefox (by disabling AdBlock Plus for Instructables.com), not all members with this problem are using FF.
