Photos Display Without Tips Answered

I just published an instructable (here), and the tip text displays when I edit, and sometimes when I view it, but usually it does not display.  For example in the intro, the first pic (of the cake) has 5 tip boxes, and the second (of the supplies) has 7.  The pictures are there, but usually (although not always) no boxes or tips are visible.

Thoughts?

This has been driving me nuts!!!!!
It first happend to a slideshow I prepared in October when I lost three or four tips boxes.
I have just tried to at least the fifth time to re-enter at least another dozen into my entry for the share your space challenge & have finallly given up.
I have tried again & again to enter several into the first two photos & a few more into a couple of the others & although some of them stay others will not.
When I first compiled the 'ible they appeared fine however as soon as I published it they vanised, I re-edited again & again & again they appered fine but were missing when published
I have tried on the same machine with Windows XP home SP3 using both Firefox 3.6.13 & also Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702.
Any ideas anybody?

Currently in neither Safari or Chrome can I add tips to pictures. It simply shows "Saving" for ages and never actually saves the tip.

Also, for some reason my posts to the BUGS section never show up. They just languish, unpublished for ages. Any idea why this is happening? Or is publishing new threads exclusive to Pro Members?

Here's a link to my question, perhaps someone can tell me if it ever shows up in the general forum:

Win XP sp3
chrome: works intermittently
IE 7: nothing
Opera 11.01: nothing
Firefox 3.6.13 works

It's the intermittent part that seems weird to me. Sometimes I won't see it, refresh the page, and there are the tip boxes again.

Chrome is intermittent for me as well (9.0.597.102, MacOSX 10.5.8). When I loaded your I'ble the first time, the image and all image notes came up perfectly. I did a reload and the second time the image notes never appeared.

That was weird. I ran Opera (11.00) on my Mac, and got the same result you did -- no image notes. Reloading the page made no difference.

I opened Preferences to check whether JavaScript was enabled. After searching around a bit, I found it under Advanced -> Content, and it was already enabled. So I just hit [OK] to get out of the Preferences pane.

All the image notes appeared! Note that I did not change any Opera settings, just looked at them. But now the picture in your Intro has all five boxes, and the notes pop-up just as you'd expect.

So I think, at least for Opera, that the problem has to do with the browser, not with I'bles Web page.

It works for me as well. Is it only the image text overlays that are giving you issues? I believe they're part of the java script, so if your java isn't enabled you're going to be missing a ton of stuff on the page, but if you're java is acting weird, you might just need to update. Let me know any specifics and I can try to help you troubleshoot (OS, Browser, JavaScript Version...)

What browser and operating system are you using? With Firefox 3.6.13 on MacOSX 10.5.8, there are no problems.
