The gallery has been a bit strange and persnickety for about a week or so. Gallery hashtags in-game are not working and the on-line gallery may or may not allow sign in for some users. When trying to search it will show only Maxis curated items and sign out users. Even a valid link can show an "Oops" message and not allow items to be viewed. These issues may be causing a great deal of stress and frustration for everyone.  
As mentioned in another thread there is a change the domain from TheSims.com to EA.com and this may be contributing to these issues.
Hopefully EA/Maxis can get this straightened out soon.

Tested using Firefox Quantum 57.0 (64-bit) Update
Hover link shows http://www.thesims.com/
Goes to https://www.ea.com/en-gb/games/the-sims
That is expected except I am in US and not GB/Great Britain
Followed links to https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc
Selected Community tab to get to the Gallery
https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery  US based version.
The Sign In button does not work. Cannot get to anything to sign in the search in the Gallery.
Using Browse at this point will only show Maxis Curated items.
If the EA ID user has no Maxis Curated items the search shows nothing.
De-selecting the Maxis Curated Advanced option requires Sign In which cannot be completed.
Google Chrome seems to work and will allow Sign In and search.
Edit: Went back to Firefox.
Gallery changes to Great Britain and able to Sign In, Search etc.
Google Chrome goes to US Version and allows Sign In.
https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery
Searches etc allowed and work as designed without changing country/language.
Back to Firefox
Switched back to US and cannot sign in or use search except Maxis Curated items.

Suggest possible workaround for US users to switch to GB/Great Britain language option.
Or use another browser.

Oh man that really sucks for Firefox users, which I am because I absolutely detest Chrome and Edge.

Has anyone else noticed that the new firefox is lagging big time? It's driving me insane! I'm about to revert back!

The newest Firefox Quantum seems to run okay for me.
But then again my internet was upgraded to run faster so maybe that is why it works.

The Internet I have has speed based around gaming and downloading. It's not my internet that is was causing the slow or lagging of Firefox as I had tried Chrome and it actually ran faster than Firefox. Right now I'm on Opera (trying it out as I really don't like to use Chrome) and it seems to be for the moment, flappin AWESOME! Laughing I uploaded some creations that I did to Sims 4 Studio and it took me an hour and a half to get one thing posted! With the old Firefox it only took me seconds to get just one uploaded.

So....GOODBYE FIREFOX! RoyalWave
