    hello,
    my friend has an iPhone 4s and recently upgraded to iOS 6... since then she has been unable to save photos from facebook app when she trys to save a photo nothing happens.... when trying to save a photo from a webpage under safari the photo downloads as a blank image... is anyone else having this issue? my friend tried reinstalling the facebook app but that was a no go.



    Thanks

    No, haven't had that happen. Does it still happen after a hard reset?

    my friend has tried restarting the phone both by turning it off and on again and she has tried holding the power and home buttons till it reboots.... i have sugested that she may have to backup her phone and do a restore.

    Same problem with FB here using iPhone 5. :(

    Holding finger on photo until it opens into its own window. Tap upper right-hand box with arrow, choose Save Photo. No results. Doesn't save it to Camera Roll.
