Can not get my profile pic to work. I go to the browser and choose a picture to upload and nothing happens, but I can upload the same picture to My Pictures and it will show up. Can anyone tell me what's up with that ?

 Greetings everybody, I'm getting ready to build my first cbg. Just starting to collect my parts. It will take a while to build it. I want to take my time so it will look and sound ok. When finished I will post a picture of it.
