Can't upload photos to facebook album, works on Opera

Posted

Within the past couple of days when trying to upload photos to Facebook using the 'photos' when clicking '+Upload Photos' the screen comes up to select the photos however it's blank and my cpu usage goes to 100%. In troubleshooting I've done the following:

Cleared cookies and cache - no change Loaded FF in safe mode - no change Tried another profile - no change

I loaded up Opera, and have no issues uploading photos

I forgot to add that I have no problems uploading to sites such as Flicker. Also, uploading images directly to a Facebook page works. The attached screenshot is what I see whenever I click on 'upload photos' in the album creation area of a Facebook page.

And this continues. I've gone so far as to make a brand new profile with no extensions installed. Still have the same issue. I have no problems at all when using Opera however I really prefer using Fire Fox because of its ease of use.

FireFox seems to be ignoring this problem. I can only upload pictures to Facebook using another browser, e.g. Explorer. Hasn't worked with FireFox for several weeks. It's a hassle, to be sure!

I am forced to use IE to upload photos to Facebook. It's a pain to change browser for just this one function. Usually Mozilla is great at fixing problems, but definitely very slow to even acknowledge this problem, let alone fix it.
