    I have been having problems with facebook for a week now. I cant upload photos to facebook. I finally was able to get the uploader screen to generate but now I cant select anything to attempt to upload. When I use the simple uploader i get the following error:

    Firefox can't find the server at upload.facebook.com.

    I have snow leopard osx and i am using the newest firefox.


    Any suggestions?

    does it work properly in Safari or do you get the same error?

    not really

    I tried it in safari and the uploader comes up but when the pictures attempt to upload it ends up saying server not found.

    i have exactly the same problem and posted a question right before you, lol.

    The only thing that works for me is as follows:

    1) select the photos you want to upload.
    2) export them to desktop using iphoto export. very import to select medium for quality/size.
    3) re-add those photos to iphoto as a new event.
    4) upload that new re-sized event using iphoto export or uploader (whichever one you have).

    I think it has something to do with picture size. My camera is 10 mp so i am guessing either iphoto or facebook is rejecting photos that are several megs in size.

    one more thing... if you choose to upload through iphoto - you actually need to keep the photos in iphoto. If you delete them or the re-sized versions i just mentioned - it deletes them from facebook. I just learned that the hard way after spending an hour tagging and captioning... grrrr cmon apple/facebook fix this already.

    I've been having the same problem, even with IE (this is at work). Can't post pictures.

    So i transferred the pictures to my External HD and tried it on my Windows Desktop and I got them to upload. Not sure whats conflicting with mac. I never had the problem with my Previous Macbook with leopard. But last time I tried on that it also had problems. Does anyone know if facebook is having mac compatibility issues?

    try this...

    I think it could be the firewall, lately other Firewall issues have been popping up, turn off or register Firefox within your FW permissions.
