sometimes I get really frustrated with digikam (and other softwares).
New versions aren't necessarily an improvement (what some people believe
make it more intuitive and easier to use, is for others a real pain).
I'm not sure, if this has been on the list already.

Digikam version 5.1, 64-bit.

I just wanted to upload pictures to flickr. Well, my login data is not
present (I've used that tool since Digikam 2 or so). So I have to create
a new connection. I follow the instructions, i.e. I do what is said on
the browser screen. Unfortunately, for unknown reasons, the default
browser Firefox does according to yahoo not allow cookies, which is
wrong. It does allow cookies. But because of this I cannot log in. The
upload tool for flickr hence cannot proceed, and I am stuck with all the
images I want to, but can't upload. I tried logging in with another
browser, but that doesn't work it seems (I can log in, but the flickr
tool does not realize it).
Besides I noticed, that the right side portion of the flickr upload
window is too narrow, so I wanted to expand it by dragging at the
boarder, ok, but only the left side portion of the tool is widened, and
not the right side. There seems to be no way to move the middle bar, so
now the left side is far too wide (well, I can narrow it down again, but
wt..., why don't such simple things work?).

Sorry, I'm really frustrated, because I've just finished a lengthy
session creating images for the upload and have no or little time left
to deal with these kind of things, which in my view don't need to be.
