Hello, I found a problem with uploading a large image to ImageShack.

When I right click the image and select "Rehost Image and Copy to Clipboard", I have waited for very long and nothing happens.

The image was not uploaded to my ImageShack account. When I tried with other images which is much smaller, it works fine.

The large image that I found a problem is 4.9MB in size and resolution is 3700x5600 pixels.

When I manually go to ImageShack and upload with image's url, the image can be uploaded to my account.

After I have updated the extension to version 1.5.2, the problem is gone. I don't know why.

It works but take longer time than manually upload via ImageShack's website.

There were some major problems with 1.5.0 and a problem with automatic image resizing in 1.5.1. That may have had something to do with it. As for it taking longer I'm not sure why that would be the case. I'm just uploading the image via POST on their public API using the Firefox connection libraries. I don't really have much control over the upload speed.
