I have a ton of cemetery images to upload, but haven't been able to upload a single one today. I keep getting this message:

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
    Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Anyone having the same problem? Know what's going on?

Forgot to mention that the images I'm trying to upload are jpg format and average 4MB.
I'm having trouble uploading with the same problem as Amber's

My photos are a lot smaller

Hi Amber.  I'm no expert on this, but since nobody else has answered after an hour, I'll give it a shot.  I've seen a number of other comments recently about photo uploading problems, but yours sounds a bit different. Yours doesn't sound like it has anything to do with the photos, so I'm wondering if you have been able to do other things on the site, such as enter other data or edit profiles?  Have you tried just logging out of the site, closing your browser, and starting over by reopening browser and logging in again?

I suggest trying that and letting us know.what happens.  If I'm completely out to lunch on this, I'll bet Gaile will be on my case pretty quickly.

I haven't had any trouble editing profiles or anything else, just the photo uploading. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try logging out, etc.

I tried, but am still not able to upload photos. sad

Did someone call me????

Dennis, I see what you mean about this problem looking different from the epidemic of problems we've been seeing on file uploads.  Although the error message Amber is reporting is a little different, I still think it's the same problem because of the appearance of server timeout or rejection of the data.

Amber, please see THIS QUESTION.  Also, please edit your question here and add the tag:  bugs
  That will get Jamie's attention and she can provide a definitive answer as to whether your problem is the same or different from the others.

Well that was my best shot for the evening, so I give up.  Hopefully Jamie will figure it out.  Good luck!
Hey, Dennis, don't despair - it was a very good shot and it still could be different … Jamie will have the decisive word on this.
Thanks to both of you. Even though it's still not working, it is some consolation at least to know that I'm not the only one having problems.
