Facebook Help!

So my computer won't let me upload pictures to Facebook. I click Add photos, choose the photo, and it gives me a notification that they couldn't complete my request, and that they're "working on it" while everyone else is posting pictures. BUT, It's my computer that's doing it, my buddy was able to post his just fine. What can this be? I can't find info on this anywhere, and I got a whole lot of pics to upload. This happens on all browsers.

I've tried that multiple times. Is there a way I can reset Facebook, in a sense?

Nope. Have you tried using the basic HTML uploader?

I'll give it a try, but what about if I ever wanted to attach a photo through message? I don't think there's basic for messages. I was thinking, maybe a flash problem? I'm not sure, but it's frustrating.

Here is the official Facebook help doc on this:

https://www.facebook.com/help/167931376599294/

How big are your photos? They recommend less than 15MB. You might want to reinstall Flash, I had a lot of issues with YouTube and stuff not showing up until I did.

Flash is a real PITA, that's why I suggested using the standard HTML uploader.

Yeah, I actually use Courier to upload stuff now for that reason.

I'll try the reinstall for flash tomorrow, which I'm sure is the problem. And can you direct me to the Basic Uploader? Every tutorial is outdated I've found so far.

Yep, all browsers, same thing. Which is why it points me to flash, is what I'm thinking.

Nah, I'm not in tune with all that stuff. Right now I'm gonna let it alone, and when I really need to upload a pic, I'll just reinstall Flash. This is my school computer, which has been working fine with Facebook, but I'm almost all graduated up and I'll be able to give it back. Just bought the new iMac yesterday. So crazy.

Try Bloom

Facebook uploading has always been pretty bad. I use Bloom to upload photos, which is much more reliable.
