Can't view thumbnails in Safari or Firefox?

OS X Tiger - Firefox & Safari

Anytime I want to upload images to, say, RockYou.com or Myspace, whatever, I hit the browse button and I can't see thumbnails of my images, only small generic icons and their titles.  This is super-annoying because when I export my photos out of iPhoto they just come out in a sequential order, which would be absolutely fine if I could see the freaking things when I am selecting them!  I have Finder set to view the largest icons possible on all folders and it works great in there, but not when browsing from Firefox or Safari.  How do I change this?  Thanks millions!

I found this is a forum discussion. It would seem that what you want to do is unsupported.

hello
> searching for works is just as useless because there are no thumbnails. neither safari 3, camino 1.5, nor the latest firefox can display svgs but none render your embedded thumbnails. tagging needs hierarchy with over 1000 terms.

Have you tried opera. It is Mac compatible
Also go to the Apple store and check out Leopard. It has a lot of eye candy devoted to thumbnails in folder view. You could upgrade to Leopard. If you have a big enough monitor running Leopard you could have your photo folder with thumbnails on one side of the screen, pick them, and then use safari to upload.
Also  this may help.

Phedius-  Opera didn't work either.  I checked the link out and that is thumbnail tabs, a cool feature but not what I am talking about.  I am talking about the browse window that comes up when you're trying to upload something to a site.  Actually I can see really ultra-small thumbnails of anything with the .psd extension but I don't know how to make those bigger and the jpgs don't show at all.
Thanks for the suggestions!

I finally got my answer in a Mac forum and here it is:

 See the forward and back arrows at the top of the screen. There is a set of lines icon and a series of boxes icon both to the right. Click on the series of boxes icon. This puts you into column view. When you click on an image, a preview should come up in the rightmost pane.


Thanks for your help pheidius!
