Windows 10: Suddenly I can't upload photos to Facebook
Suddenly I can't upload photos to Facebook
I use Facebook regularly so this is a new problem which has just started.
On the FB page when I click upload photo, instead of opening one of my folders to find the photo, it simply hangs with the little twirling circle.
I noticed this first on my laptop on a FB group I manage, so tried the same on my FB Home Page and everything worked OK. I checked other pages and the same problem.
Then I tried on my PC and found that even on my Home Page I have the same problem.
On Google some suggested clearing the cache etc which I did - no help.
I have tried logging out and in again - no solution.
Any ideas would be most welcome.
Try a different Web browser. I occasionally have problems with WordPress and IE with uploading photos, but when I change to Chrome or Firefox, the problems go away. If that doesn't work, post again here, and we'll come up with other strategies.
Thanks so much for responding.
When I try to get onto FB with Firefox the whole screen goes black!
I have been having problems anyway with IE on FB pages when just part of it goes black when I try to make a post from a URL - the photo doesn't come up.
So I have to go along with this weird get around procedure of cut and pasting the item again after closing down the page.
I am not very computer savvy - maybe because I'm 75!. I've tried the FB help but no help.
I have a feeling that this is something which has been not right for some time and has finally packed up.
I can still post messages on FB and share items.
Please let me know anything else you need to help.
Thanks a lot
Sorry adding to my last posting.
I now find I cannot even post a message on FB. It just hangs with the twirl circle going on continuously.
Would it help to post a screenprint - can I do that?
PS Although this is happening on my laptop, the same thing happens when I'm on my PC upstairs and connected by a TP line.

Probably you need to upgrade your browser to the latest version. Or, could be your flash why not upgrade it too. I occasionally experienced such thing where uploading photos encounter some errors, when it happens I just clear history or update my browser.
Thanks but I have done all that and no joy. I have a PC and a laptop and it happens with both so maybe that suggests it's a FB problem?
