The 'suggested' comics not clickable?

The five cropped comics near the bottom of the page - the ball pit, transistor thing, spinning girl, pie chart and wind farm. I believe they were clickable before - are they still, and there is something wrong on my end?

Functions properly here. Leads to comic numbers 150, 730, 162, 688, and 556, respectively.

Have you tried clearing your cache?

No good, though I tried it in IE and it worked fine. Regardless, it's clearly on my end in some way. Thanks.

Edit: I figured it was a Chrome extension, but they didn't work in Incognito mode, either. Peculiar.

Chrome here, OS X 10.6.8 (at the moment), same issue. Clearing the cache didn't help.
Checking Firefox...same issue.
Google Chrome is up to date (Version 23.0.1271.95)
Firefox is version 3.6.3.

According to a comment on the page, this is a bug in Chrome (caused by a bug in WebKit).

Works for me in latest Firefox (17.0.1).

Firefox isn't used often enough on this machine to warrant the update, so disregard the bit about it not working there.
The webkit bug link you provide has patches, but I'm not 100% on how to apply them, and this isn't my machine, so unless I am sure nothing bad will happen, I'm not going to worry.
It's not an issue at the xkcd.com end, anyway.
