Why can't I add favorites?

JavaScript is required to add favorites. So make sure you have JavaScript enabled in your browser, and make sure that any browser extension that can block JavaScript such as NoScript or AdBlock Pro is currently not blocking JavaScript from MetaFilter domains. Because MetaFilter relies on the Google AJAX Library API and Amazon CloudFront to host code related to favorites, you'll also need to make sure that the domains googleapis.com and cloudfront.net are allowed in any script-blocking extensions.

Also note there is a per-day limit on the number of favorites you can add, which is 240. If you have been very active favoriting things today, it's possible you have hit your favorites limit for the day.
