Maybe the file is too large to upload.

It needs to be resident on your PC of course, rather than linking to Facebook or onbline photo archives like Photobucket.

If it is too large, try this site to create it as an avatar, save it back to your PC with a new name and then try uploading:

OK

If the pic is on your PC, let's make sure you did all the right things:

In PROFILE go to the Modify Profile category and double-click on Froum Profile Information.

Go to Profile and make sure the 'I will upload my own picture' button is selected.

Press the 'Browse' button.

Go through the files on your PC to find the one you want to use.

Double click on that picture.

The software will then select it for you and upload it - you will not see this happening.

Now, go to the bottom of the page and select 'Change profile'.  This then saves your new settings (including the new avatar).

N.B. You must click the button 'Change profile' or your pic will not be saved.

Then go to 'Recent Topics and find a post of your to see if the new avatar is there.

If it has not changed the odds are that the pic is just too large.
If this is the case, if you have the pic saved on Facebook, don't double click, just right click on it and Save it to your PC (Call it Avatar) .  Then try the process above again. :)
