Lightroom: Browser issue authorizing Flickr in LR4.1

  • Problem
  • Updated 6 years ago
I already have a Publish Service for Flickr created in LR3. I now wish to create a second Publish Service for which I am now prompted to re-authenticate. I choose to do so and Lightroom launches a browser window in Internet Explorer 8. I choose to authorise lightroom on the web page and then I get a message from the browser that "The webpage can not be displayed".

On closer inspection this is because the configuration of the third party app on Photoshop.com is trying to send the browser to an address with a protocol of "Lightroom" which is clearly not going to work so the authorisation is not registered and Lightroom does not mark my Flickr account as authorised. For reference I tried this with Firefox 8.0.1 and the same problem occured except the browser told me it didn't have a default program installed to handle the Lightroom protocol.

I then looked at the default handlers in Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit (my system) and I do not have any registered handlers for a lightroom protocol. I assume this needs to be added but I am more concerned why it is missing. Can you let me know what I need to do to reinstate this please?

FYI : The address it was trying to send my browser to was [oauth verifier deliberated truncated in this post]

lightroom://com.adobe.lightroom.export.flickr/#?oauth_token=72157630090297080-baa7ac3ca96a97b2&oauth_verifier=[verifier code removed in this post]

Hello,
I cannot obtain anymore a connection between Lightroom and my Flickr account.
As usual Flickr is asking me the confirmation but then I obtain a blank page with the following adress : "static.photoshop.com/products/lightroom/flickr_success.html#?oauth_token=..... [my IDs]"
I tried to reboot my computer, delete my previous plugin account... no way, to recover this connection.
Any idea ?
Thank you

I can't use flickr service in my LR

- click 'authorize'
- nothing is done
- Lightroom doesn't open my webbrowser

I have used this service from LR3 version

The same with creating new Flickr service

Lightroom 4.1, Windows 64bit, sefault Flickr service, Chrome

At the moment I have to upload my photos manual and it is really stupid because I can't sync it after redevelop.

I hope this will work for you :
I reinstalled Lightroom 4.1, and after opening the saved catalog I recovered the connection to Flickr.
But I still don't know the reason of this 'bug'...

Did you mean Lightroom catalog or other? Did it work before?

Michal, I reinstalled Lightroom 4.1 software from zero.
But before I made a save of my catalog.
After the new installation of Lightroom and using the backup catalog I recovered my Flickr connection.
Before I had also this problem.

I've had the same problem. It turned out it's just a firewall problem for me: I blocked everything on port 80 (http).

No it works fine.
