But its not happening as you describe
I sign in.
Go to the picture i want to delete.
Hover over it, and a gear wheel appears in the top right hand corner of the picture.
I hover over that, and a drop down apears.
I click delete,in the drop down, and instead of deleting, my screen just goes dark.
Its nothing like what you described.
Incidental, the dark screen happens if i click'Create Album', so something is wrong
