I have a similar issue in Lr CC running in Win7. The Flickr plugin supplied with Lightroom has always been problematic. I don't use Flickr much but if I did I would use this plugin: Export to Flickr

It worked perfectly before. I saw Export to Flickr plugin but it isn't free and I don't plan to pay more than I already paid for LR CC.

I'm here to discuss problems and improvements of Adobe software :)

Thank you, but I don't want to install and pay for third party software to replace non-working Adobe functionality.

Do you have ideas how to fix problem with LR CC?

The lightroom.exe -register trick allows successful authorization of Flickr accounts. However, in my case it also trashed the links to photos in Flickr. No big deal for me since Flickr is not my primary photo site.

Thanks to Victoria for the link to the suggested trick. Also, Adobe software on Windows is notorious for causing problems if you uninstall an old version after installing a newer version.

lightroom.exe -register doesn't help me (I had similar problem before and solved it by reinstalling Lightroom).
I had another kind of the problem - it was solved by replacing default browser from IE to Chrome

I cannot link Lightroom CC and Flickr; I try to authorize, the success screen is blank, and LR says it has not yet been authorized.  :-(
