How to fix the Uploader Java Applet for Facebook on Firefox for Mac


On Firefox for Macintosh, and maybe even on PC’s, Facebook photo uploading can be a small discomfort when you try to select photos for uploading. The screen shot above shows you why: for some weird reason the Java uploader gets screwed up, loading only 90% of the uploader applet. Thus, you can barely make out the “Upload” button which goes right beside the select all and deselect all button. You can’t click on it. To remedy this, all you need to do is click on the “select all” (or “deselect all”) button and press Tab. Your cursor will automatically move to the Upload button and press the spacebar (not enter!) to accept changes.

Or, just download Opera or use Safari. 🙂
