Facebook problems on Firefox

Not sure whether any of you are facing the same problem but I am unable to create albums or upload pictures on Facebook using the Firefox browser. I am able to take the pictures and make comments but whenever I try to create an album, it will just hang.

However, I have no such problems using Microsoft Internet Explorer. As I use Firefox most of the time, this can be quite annoying.

Anyone facing the same problem?

UPDATE:

Found the cause of the problem. Apparently, to use the full-featured photo uploader on Firefox on Microsoft Vista, you must have the latest version of the Java plug-in. Versions of Java older than 1.6.0_07 will cause Firefox to freeze (info provided by Facebook). Alternatively you can use the simple uploader, which works just as well..

is your firefox up to date? I was in face book yesterday and uploaded a new album and added pictures to an already existing one with no problems.

I do keep getting hung up while playing parking wars, though...

That leaves me even more confused. I am using the latest version of Firefox (2.0.0.12). Will check whether it's due to my firewall.
