I have PSE 11 and have just upgraded to PSE 12. In both these versions I have had the problem that Share to Flickr either times out with an error saying either my internet connection is down, or there are firewall issues, or it says I need to authorize the upload process in Flickr. In the second case, it pops me onto the flickr website where I can push an authorization button, then return to PSE to complete the authorization. In this case, PSE attempts to upload and reports an error in the upload process and quits.

I have been found a report on kb403064 using the help|support link in PSE. One recommendation for authorization problems is to Reset Accounts in PSE, and delete cookies in the default browser. I have tried this and find it doesn't fix the problem.

Two paragraphs later it says that if the Share to Flickr fails from within PSE, but you can upload from Flickr in the browser, then it may be an Adobe server issue and should be reported. Indeed, the upload from within Flickr works, so I am reporting the problem. Do you have suggestions?
