Why does batch photo uploading to a Facebook album freeze at 35%?

Osama November 28, 2010

Whenever I upload multible photos to a Facebook album, the upload bar always always freezes at approximately 35%. Why is this so? I am using Mozilla Firefox 3.6.12.

    Failed to upload photo.
    There was a problem with the image file.....i think i am being censured by facebook servers because i can not post photos that are already in my wall post file// i am artist painter of eclectic classical nude art and they seemed to be unaware of freespeech// what to do?

      free speech doesn't apply in 'private domains'  i.e. facebook isn't a public location (city hall for example).  You can't run into a skyscraper and get naked can you?

    Do you use the flash-based uploader? It sometimes troubles people.


    1) Change the browser and try.

    2) When you click the "Add more Photos" button when in an album, you'll see this:

    "Uploading tip

    You can select multiple photos in the dialogue by holding the 'ctrl' key down while clicking on the photos.

    Click the "Try the simple uploader" link. It sure involves a lot of work, but your photos will be uploaded without any problem. :)

    The java program used to upload photos on facebook has always been hit or miss with me. One thing you can try is try doing the uploading on Google Chrome. When a java program on the web doesn't work for me, I usually switch my browser and it will work. It all has to do with how the browser renders and uses java.

    Another solution is to use an external program to do all the uploading. You can use google's Picasa photo managing program. The plugin for it can be found here:
