Chrome Problem viewing

I seem to be having a persistent and repeatable issue with viewing instructables in my Chrome Browser. I see the first "page" of any instructable, but then when i scroll down or page down, it dissapears! The outer frame scrolls down but the instructable disappears until i scroll back up. I can only see the 1st page. I don't see this issue on any other website. It doesn't change is i resize my browser. I am using Chrome Version 35.0.1916.153 m  Running on a WIndows 7 machine. Any ideas?

Not working on chrome

I've been trying to get on instructables all day on chrome and it just loads for a super long time and then gives me the robot telling me be happy it's not velociraptors, which i totally am happy about but i just finally asked my coworker if he could get on and he was on instantly. I tried to go on with firefox and it works fine. So i dunno what's up with that. let me know if you need anymore info. also the copyright year on the instructables is down page is out of date. (i'm assuming)

Spray painting over chrome

There is this chair I've always wanted but it had chrome feet. I do not like chrome. Could I spray paint it and if so what are the steps? Or could I diffuse it so it is duller? Thanks

Google Chrome Cant Upload Images

In Google Chrome the past few days when you click on the upload images button the 'Upload, Cancel, Image Library' Buttons are out of view at the bottom of the screen. There is no scroll bar to get down to them, making the image uploader non working for me in Chrome. For now I'm using Firefox , but Firefox just doesn't invade my personal privacy to the degree that Chrome does, therefore it's psychic link ability to read my mind is not as strong as with Chrome. (Passwords, Search suggestions, autofill, etc.) Attatched is an image. There is a scroll bar on the side of the browser window but it doesnt scroll the image uploader, just the page behind it.

Help. GOOGLE CHROME BUG

 Dear Administrator: I am a regular ( make it daily) visitor to your website. Somehow my google chrome ver 3.0.195.33 cannot seem to download your print pdf if it downloads to the browser. Is there any method wherein we can download to the folder the print pdf version? I am using adobe acrobat 7 . According to a person who talked to me in the answers, (Mr. Re-design), he can download his pdfs without a hitch. Do I have memory problems? I have 10GB left in my hard disk and I use Dual Core processor with 1GB ram. Please help, I am just about to do some experiments and I can only print it hardcopy from the all view pages, without the photos since the image tags seem to cover them. Best Regards Mike Du

Trying to upload images in Chrome ends up doing nothing

1) Using latest stable Chrome for Windows 8.1 2) Viewing image library 3) Clicking "Upload Images" 4) Drag-dropping an image into the target area 5) Press the orange "Upload" button. The button disables. 6) wait ... wait ... wait ... nothing ever happens Chrome Version 45.0.2454.85 Curiously, the new uploader dialog for this bug report form doesn't allow me to even browse to an image, but the old uploader seems to work, but after uploading, the screen shot of the bug doesn't show up below, either.

New Site Search Doesn't Work on Chrome on Mac

I'm running Chrome 27.0.1453.47 beta on a MacBook Pro running OS 10.8.3 and I can type in the new search box on the main homepage but it doesn't search when I hit return or when I click on the magnifying glass. It worked in Firefox though.  I've disabled adblock to see if that was the cause of the issue and that didn't help either.  Anyone else have this issue?  I've had a lot of issues with Chrome on the Mac with this site, including when editing instructables.  I couldn't even submit this bug report on Chrome because the "Preview Topic" button would not do anything when clicked.

Why Google Chrome Beta is the Best!

Google Chome is the best! In case you don't know what it is, it's a internet browser made by google. I like it because it is:1. Fast2. Clean (no useless stuff in interface)3. Shows all downloads on bottom4. Tabs on top5. When you open a new tab, it shows the most visited sitesTo download, go to http://www.google.com/chrome .

Electoplating wood. CHEMISTRY QUESTIONS!

Hello guys, Thanks alot for reading. I don't know much about chemistry outside of my one high school class. We electroplated a penny. I have a 1.5ish square-foot piece of wood, and i am wanting to CHROME IT.... chrome paint kits cost hundreds of dollars, and i've before seen chrome-plated wood.. and i want to replicate the results. [img]http://www.eastcoastpowdercoating.com/liquid%20chrome%20guitar.jpg[/img]I'm looking for a cost effective alternative to expensive chrome kits (+300 dollars for a pint)In theory.... my method would involve somehow plating the guitar with some sort of metallic based paint, then submerging it in a chrome bath. [b]IS THIS POSSIBLE??[/b]Is there a metal chemical that can somehow be applied evenly to the entire surface of the wood? (i.e. paint?)What, and how much of the specific chemicals do i need, and where can i find them?I really want this to be mirrored. Thanks so much for your responses to my problem:P

Images in Chrome & Safari

When clicking on the thumbnails below images on the first page of an instructable, nothing happens.  I recently sent my instructable to a friend who informed me that he couldn't bring up the images on my page (he uses Safari on Mac OS X).  I tested Safari and it is the thumbnail issue.  The same problem happens with Chrome (Mac OS X).  It would be really nice to get these bugs worked out because there is a lot of cool stuff on this site.   PS: This image issue does not happen on all instructables (don't know why).  It does on mine however and several others I have visited. Thanks!

Reply Button Doesn't work, neither does the instructables per page

Hey! Just want to let you guys know that on the MAC (Chrome and Safari) the reply button does not work. I have to refresh the page a whole bunch of times before it works.  Also, in Safari, the instructables per page (15, 30, 60, 90) does not work. It only shows 15 per page, and I can't change it. Thanks!

Instructables editor? Why can't adjust text box size??

Hey! So I'm on a mac, using Safari and Chrome. So like when I'm typing this post right now, in the corner of the editor is a little drag button that allows me to make the text box bigger. When you're making an instructable, the little arrow isn't there, so I can't make the editor box bigger, and it's a real pain when I have to keep on scrolling up and down. Plus I cant see my whole step at once.  Is this a Mac bug, or is it just a feature lacking?

Virtual LEGO building for Google Chrome Web Browser!!!

Technology has just been released to allow users to build virtual creations with LEGO using the Google Chrome Web Browser! Now you can pretend to be busy at work (or school) while making some new amazing Lego Builds! You can download Chrome and get started HERE.  It's super easy to use AND IT'S ALL IN 3D. Right now there are only basic pieces in 10 different colors and doors and windows, but I'm sure there will be more parts down the road. So do you think this is as cool as I do, or is virtual building a step in the wrong direction? ** If you make something with it, take a screenshot and post the image for others to see. ;-)

​Can't stay logged in on Chrome after opening link from email using Google+ Authentication

Is there a real bug reporter/tech support forum/email? This seems to be going into the generic user forum.I've been experiencing the following bug/glitch for a while now:0) I have zero problems when I login manually and copy&past; URLs into windows/tabs spawned from a fresh login in a fresh window1) Click on link in Feed email using gMail's web interface in Chrome 2) Even thought I authenticate with Google+, I'm not logged in 3) I re-sign-in using Google+ and all seems well4) Re-load page launched from email link, not logged in5) Go back to Home Page, I'm logged in.6) Go back to 'ible page, delete all the '?=tracking_informtion' off the end of the URL and refresh, not logged in. (This used to resolve the problem)This wouldn't be so bad if the "Favorite" process behaved like most other sites and continued the interrupted process after signing in. Trying to favorite an 'ible results in:A) Open the 'ible via an email link in gMail in ChromeB) 'ible page shows me as NOT logged in.C) Click on Favorite button, sent to Sign-In page, sign-in, Instructables home page loads.D) If I am signed-in, clicking on the Favorite link on the 'ible page sends me to the home page. No option to sign-in, because I am, and the 'ible is not favorited

"Malware Detected"

Hi, today I got an error message in chrome whenever I load an instructables page; "Google has found malicious software may be installed onto your computer if you proceed. If you've visited this site in the past or you trust this site, it's possible that it has just recently been compromised by a hacker. You should not proceed, and perhaps try again tomorrow or go somewhere else. We have already notified www.instructables.com that we found malware on the site. For more about the problems found on www.instructables.com, visit the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page." on the diagnostic page, it says; "What is the current listing status for www.instructables.com? Site is listed as suspicious - visiting this web site may harm your computer. What happened when Google visited this site? Of the 18 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-06-16, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days. This site was hosted on 8 network(s) including AS4436 (AS), AS22300 (WIKIA), AS3257 (TISCALI). Has this site acted as an intermediary resulting in further distribution of malware? Over the past 90 days, www.instructables.com/files/orig did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites. Has this site hosted malware? No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days. How did this happen? In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message." It goes on to suggest using the Google Webmaster tools to request a review. It seems odd that it's always been fine before, then for no apparent reason shows this?

A Small but useful little suggestion...

Quite often, while browsing sites, I read, then discover: "Oh my! The author has included a link! What a delight!" Then I click the middle mouse button on that link to open it in another tab, to check out. Well the problem is, when I middle click links on Instructables, it opens in the same tab, so I have to press the back button, reload the page I was on, go to that link, then right click "Open In New Tab". Well this isn't really a major problem, I admit, but it's sure a little bit irritating when I forget to right-click "New Tab". I tested this with other browsers, and it's only Google Chrome with the problem. (As far as I know) By the way, great site, keep it up!

Chrome open source browser available now!

At the moment, the only thing available for people anticipating Google's new open source browser, chrome, is screenshots and a comic book explaining why it was made. LinkyBut it is supposed to be available for download later today. Rumor is it will become available at 2 PM ET today. No word yet on whether it will steal your identity like Microsoft's IE.Hooray for opensource browsers! If it does become available today as planned, I'll link to the download page.Corrected link: Download linkSorry it took so long, I was scrubbing a toilet and simply lost track of the time...EDIT:Go here for adblocker, gmail, etc, GM scripts to run in chrome.

Malware warnings from Google Chrome

Sirs, I'm using Chrome & was checking aol mail. Clicked on Instructables newsletter and Chrome pops up with a warning of Instructables being infected by Malware & would not be a good idea to continue. They stated they had contacted Instructables concerning the problem but advised staying away for a few day's. I went to Gmail account & signed in with no trouble (I Hope!). Do y'all have any info on this problem? Have y'all actually been contacted by Google? Thanks for any clarification, Zappenfusen

Can't paste text using Google Chrome

Well I can't copy and paste text, like the title says. I am aware that people using Firefox and Internet Explorer do not have this problem, but really I would prefer to use Google Chrome. It was fine before the new editor came in, everything was really simple before then. When the new editor first came out, I overcame the problem by pasting my text as a link, and then simply removing the link, leaving normal text. But now (as someone else pointed out) I can't even do this, because the link thing is broken! Why can't we just go back to the old editor : (

Airsoft Megastore not safe?

When I open Airsoft megastore.com on google chrome, put something into my cart, then hit checkout, Chrome says the site is not safe to input valuable or personal information to. This got me thinking as to why it wouldnt be safe. No security protection against hackers? Or has it been hacked and if I input my credit card info will they be able to steal my info? I just dont want anyone getting ahold of my credit card info and buying stuff... Is ASM a trustworthy site, and Chrome just has a glitch or something that is causing the site to be deemed 'unsafe'? Or is it all a scam? This dillema has stopped me from buying a gun during their black Friday Doorbuster Deals, which was a great deal. Oh well better safe than sorry I guess. Thanks

I'm able to press the 'I made it' button. Then the options 'add tip', 'ask question', 'post comment', etc. pop up.

Login and voting issues

Apparently my husband has been having issues with logging in. He pretty much only logs in to vote for my ibles, as he's very sweet and supportive. When he goes to login, it tells him that his password is wrong. He tells it to reset his password and it will work for only one login attempt. If he logs out and attempts to log back in immediately or over time with that password, it again tells him that his password is wrong. This happens in both Chrome and Explorer.  On top of that, when he gets logged in, the vote buttons on my ibles don't work if he's using Chrome (his default browser). They act like images instead of buttons. So, after he's already reset his password in Chrome (because he forgot he needs to use Explorer), he has to switch to Explorer and reset it again before he can vote.
