    Default Picture upload problems are back

    Using the Advanced -> Manage Attachments to upload photos is back to being problematic. If I select more than one photo to upload the attachment manager spins for ~20 seconds and then nothing. No photos uploaded. I have to select and upload each photo One. At. A. Time. That's overly tedious. I presume it's a file size limitation.

    Windows 10 Pro, Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.590)
    Firefox 65.0.1 (64-bit)

    Photos are .jpg format and range in file size from 6-10mb each

    If I use the "Insert Image" tool instead (and tell Firefox to "Allow" the Adobe Flash usage on Steel Soldiers) I can select multiple pictures and they upload just fine (the "basic uploader" doesn't seem to work though, it appears unresponsive)

    I've always loaded pictures one at the time. Large files take a l-o-o-o-o-o-n-g time to upload, for the ones you want to upload try changing the compression on them to 25 percent and resizing them to 1200 pixels on the longest side. They will not display any bigger than that anyway.

    3 files uploaded from img icon up top of edit window (basic uploader). No problem. Win 10 Firefox.


    6-10mb images? Resize before uploading, the image is just going to be cropped down anyhow.
