uploading photos to emails in windows7

I have just got a new pc running firefox on a windows 7 home premium system. My last pc had firefox with windows xp. On my xp emails I clicked the browse box and I got lots of choices to select. I went into my pictures made my selections and they all came out as attachments. Now I am unable to access MY library/my pictures from my emails. Every time I click the browse button I get a box up entitled FILE UPLOAD. Inside this box is a kind of taskbar with the headings:- BOOT(C), WINDOWS LIVE, PHOTO GALLERY. I am unable to find a way to transfer my pictures to emails.
Help please
Regards

Re: uploading photos to emails in windows7

Presumably you mean you are using Thunderbird..... as email client....
FIrefox is the web browser...
In Thunderbird....... , new message> click on "Attach",  (paper clip) ....which should bring up your "my computer"  where you can browse your folders, double click on the folder, double click on the file, it should then appear in a list at top right (opposite the address panel)
Well, that`s how it works for me in Vista....  can`t see Thunderbird doing it differently for W7 ....

Thanks SHUTTER & PIERRE PIERRE for your answers. I do not think I have THUNDERBIRD, none of the items you both mention appear on my email composing page. I use SQUIRREL MAIL via firefox access not internet explorer!

Thunderbird is an offshoot of Firefox and free  http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/.
You can use IMAP - like squirel and see the spam fold (SWMBO Box) or Pop3 at the same time, if you have all yours as IMAP you can slide mail form one box to another

Re: uploading photos to emails in windows7

I have now solved my problem! I saw some movement at the side of the FILE UPLOAD box. A dragged the box to the right and this uncovered the MY PICTURES option.T!he outcome is that windows 7 /squirrel mail works just the same as xp/squirrel mail when selecting photos!
Many thanks to  SHUTTER, PIERRE-PIERRE, and OLDJIM for your kind help! Regarding the THUNDERBIRD info I will stick with my SQUIRREL MAIL. Thunderbird may be better but I do not have a very good understanding of PCs and as they say;- The devil you know is better than the one you don't know!
