Can't follow flickr accounts?

Stig Nygaard says:

Where the follow button usually is available in header on Flickr profiles, I now only see a three-dots button which opens a menu with options to send a message, block or report account. No way to follow?

On people/accounts I already follow, I still see the Following/Unfollow button besides the three-dots button.


PS. When posting this I get a warning saying:
"We've noticed that you're going to link to a fellow Flickr member in your post.
Please keep in mind that we don't like to be "finger-pointy" in the Help Forum..."
I don't know why I get that warning. I have no links at all in this post?

PPS. I just see the "Follow" button is still present on photopages.

There should be a Follow button between the name and the three dots button, at least that's what I have. I can follow people.

I see the follow button on your profile page. Did you turn off your flickr fixer for a minute to see if that's it?

Not that this is necessarily the case, but if someone is blocking you (or I think if you are blocking them) follow won't show as an option. Is it happening for you for a single user or for all users?

I had the same issue; it looks like the button is blocked by adblockers.

Rule number one, always try that before reporting problems. Honestly I had forgot to try it :-) But just did, and its not to blame for this...

Bingo. Turning of my Adblock Plus extension makes the button return.

Odd, I'm running AdBlock+ (under FF) and still see the Follow button.
