Sometime it is your internet provider. When it happens to me I try other sites and then I find out it is the internet connection. It especially happens when I m using my phone.

If you are uploading full sized uncropped versions, it can slow down too but not that long!

When we changed providers and got more bandwidth, upload speed increased tremendously becoming almost instantaneous. But all of the sudden my "upload a photo" button on my phone stopped working at all. I usually don't have any problems uploading from my phone. The button turns yellow but just sits there. I click it again, it turns back to green but won't let me click on it to retry. I am ready to blame my phone. I am not too happy with the latest update.

Which phone operating system (i.e. Apple iOS, Android, Windows, or a manufacturer-specific one) and browser (i.e. Safari, Firefox, Chrome) do you use, Cheryl?

@ShadyGreenThumb - thanks Cheryl. The S7 Edge should be fine from a performance perspective, so I'm wondering if the latest Firefox has a bug in it. Can you try uploading a photo using Chrome or the inbuilt Android Browser? This will help narrow it down.

At a guess, @ShadyGreenThumb, the latest Firefox update might have a bug in it, or you have an addon that is causing a problem. You could try clearing the cache on Firefox to see if that makes a difference. Hopefully, if it is a bug in Firefox, it will be fixed in the next update (a major version of Firefox is released every 2-3 months).
