    Can you be more specific? There are at least four different problems that people have reported. Where does it fail, what happens then, do you get an error message, what browser and version are you using, and have you performed the Cookie Dance?

    I use Safari 2.0.4 Since I am using dial-up, I right click on add a image, and I then upload my photograph, and click to insert into post, it immediatly opens a new window, and nothing happens?

    When I want to add a picture, and I don’t right click on the icon, it takes far too long to load, but that is just because of my connection speed.

    I look foward to any answers!

    There is a bug affecting Safari at the moment. Try Firefox:-)

    Well, this is just a workaround but instead of hitting Insert Into Post, just copy the URL and use the Image Icon in the toolbar to put the image in your post. You can format it there as well.

    Oh! Thankyou for answering so promptly. Although since my connection is slow, I find it nearly impossible to use Firefox.
    Nevertheless, at least I know it was not something I was doing wrong! :)

    Well, I thought the Safari problems had gotten cleared up. Make sure you have Flash 9, because that’s the #1 reason this fails to work, old Flash.

    Thank you. I don’t know if I have Flash 9, so I’ll check…

    It’s been going on for three weeks. To get around it, see the post immediately above yours.

    This is a disaster, the Gallery is utterly broken. I hate the whole new flash part that separates the gallery from the rest of the post. Having everything on the same page the way it was before was much superior. So with

    * Gallery broken
    * Impossible to embedd picasa web albums.

    I’m changing if this isn’t resolved in a few days.

    I am having the same problem — inserting an image doesn’t work no matter what method I try. And the work-around doesn’t work, for me. I am using Firefox.

    Sigh. I don’t know why the suggestion of using Firefox keeps coming up. It really misleads people. Despite this image upload problem having been evident for MONTHS to admin, and also being totally clear to anyone viewing the forum on a regular basis that it is a wordpress not firefox/browser/flash problem, there is still a surprised reaction. “What? Really? Your image doesn’t upload? Quelle surprise! Why don’t you try Firefox?” I think this is really dishonest. Every time I look at the forum it is clogged with posters with image upload problems. Prolems that I might add didn’t exist before the upgrade. All you hear is how some browsers are not clearing caches etc, blah blah blah. I’m sorry, IT USED TO WORK PROPERLY BEFORE.The browsers shouldn’t have to fit in with the wordpress upgrade. WordPress needs to make sure it works with the current browsers. The only method that works is cutting and pasting the URL with the add image button. Can I add that I didn’t get a reply to my last support email on this topic.
