It currently only allows me to select one photo at a time from Gallery. It should enable us to select as many photos as I want until I click Done. I also had difficulty removing the photo I just added. There are two buttons: (1) "1 Photo Added X" (2) "+ Add photo". The distance between the "X" and "+" is too close. I keep on clicking the "+ Add photo" everytime I want to remove the photo I just added. I ended up have to click on the "Cancel" button on the top left options.
Just investigated this bug report. Please remember to provide detailed steps to reproduce with bugs filed. I see this as two bugs: 1= unable to post several photos with status update. 2= "+" & "X" are too close together, causing wrong input to register. 1: This is technically a new feature request, as opposed to a bug. Feedback on testing: When making a status update, I was able to add multiple photos to the update by clicking the "+", selecting an image from gallery, then repeating the process before making the post. I successfully added several photos to a post using this method. We will fwd this feature req to our friends at fb and see if we can get "multiple photo selection" in the feature pipeline. 2: Crowded "x" & "+" buttons: I did not experience any difficulty selecting these buttons individually. Although buttons are adjacent, they have a large touchable area and can easily be pressed without erroneous input. Marking this as "Wont Fix"

Looks like this issue is a platform bug. Facebook currently supports the use of multi-file-selction FXOS needs to add support for HTML5 multiple file selection https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/HTMLInputElement/multiple @Andrew - Can you pls take a look at this bug and provide a comment?

(In reply to Michael Ellis from comment #2) > FXOS needs to add support for HTML5 multiple file selection Yeah, looks like bug 852203 to me. https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/b2g/components/FilePicker.js is the relevant code. You should probably ask someone on the B2G team if they can do this work and baku can review.
David - Would you mind taking a look at this bug and providing a comment?
This is a hard bug. Even if we do the gecko work Andrew describes in comment #3, the file picker still depends on the pick activity. All of our apps implement pick to return a single object. We'd have to modify apps so that they could optionally allow multiple items to be picked. That will require the UX team to specify how the interaction should be done, and would require engineering work to modify all the media apps (and possibly also contacts). I'm not saying we shouldn't do it, just that it might not happen soon. Note that the Gallery app does allow multiple images to be shared at once. So if we had a facebook uploader app, then the user could select multiple photos, tap the share button and select Facebook from there. That's where I'd suggest we focus our efforts. If we can get Facebook to make their app handle the share activity for photos, then it becomes trivial to share multiple photos from gallery to Facebook.
Any updates here?
Ken, is there someone able to help on that ?
