Another photo issue


I have not had any problems posting photos in the past.
My procedure is, as example, go to home depot website, right click on the photo, copy image location, go to manage attachments and paste link and try to upload.
Always fails with "failed due to failure writing temporary file."

Maybe I am doing something wrong and need to go back and read the manual
Just it always worked in the past, am wondering if something changed recently.
I took a screenshot of my desktop with the error, we see I can upload photos from my pc.

Some sites do not allow copying of their photos.

I understand that, And here is a photo that I have posted several times in the past for a workaround to others.
http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pro...15673a_300.jpg

Here is complete error , I missed the full error last post.
Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file

So that above photo has been known to work for me in the past, now I get same error from any photo. If you would be kind enough to see if the photo works for you.
I would then know the problem is on my end, and maybe I need to clear my browser cache?
Maybe I will do it anyways, was just wondering before I go mucking around and chasing ghost, if anyone else has seen the error.

Sometimes posting a photo is as easy as right click on the picture. Click copy. Come on over to chatroom. Bring up the reply box. Right click again . click on paste

.Voila

Your photo looks better then this crappy thing
But yeah, that seems to work and problem is on my end.
I use fire fox browser, is possible a recent update caused the issue or I need to clear my cache. But I do know is a issue on my end now.

It's not you. It's a problem with the software settings that manage this forum. If you google "Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file" you'll see lots of problems.

After you start the reply, click the plus sign next to send in the upper right corner. It will bring up this screen.

Try deleting the app from your phone and reinstall it. When you try replying and the phone asks for permission to access your photos, click the option to allow it.
