Can't upload pictures to Facebook


Hi: I have a MacbookPro, OSX 10.5.8, and I use Firefox 3.5.9. I cannot upload photos to Facebook. I get a broken up "load" window, with not even the "upload" button to click, plus I can't select the photos I want to use.

I can do it perfectly, however, using Safari. Can you help? Thanks!

Under Preferences/Content, 'upload pictures automatically' was unchecked. Checked it, and now it's fine.
