I have google chrome and when I upload photos to Facebook or Imageshack I cannot find a way to show thumbnails, only detail view. I also tried this in Firefox. This is quite important as it is stopping my friend from switching to Ubuntu over Windows.

Included a picture of the File Upload window, how do I change this to a thumbnail view rather than the current list?

At present, I do not believe there is a way to switch to thumbnail view, only to click a file and get a thumbnail preview. – James Jan 6 '13 at 18:44

You need to put the cursor on to a file and you will see the thumbnail.

This does not address the question of how to switch to thumbnail view (which may not be possible), only of how to get individual previews of files. – James Jan 6 '13 at 18:45
