1. install latest nightly
2. goto facebook, log into your profile, and try to upload photos
3. Verify uploading photos fail
Actual Results:  
Uploading photos fail

Expected Results:  
uploading photos should work.
Bug 357179 suggests this might be a problem with your configuration, Tony, rather than a TE bug.
The Java upload tool fails on Camino trunk 2008041301. The Simple Uploader works fine.

IIRC, the Java tool has been problematic in the past with Camino, so that may not be a particularly useful test ;)

Tony, have you tried a Firefox 3 beta? I'm mostly wondering why this was filed under TE, since I see nothing to indicate it's broken because of something Facebook did wrong.
Possibly related Console messages from around the time this happened:

Based on some digging Tony and I have done on IRC, this is definitely a problem on the Mac, and may be a problem on all non-Windows platforms. It does *not* happen on Windows.

Java uploader seems to work on windows XP nightly builds.   is this related to bug 421855?   Attaching a screenshot of the error.
Depends on: 421855
