Hi, I am trying to use the accept file input for limit the file type that a user can choose when uploading a file. actually i have two problems that i can not figure our:
1. If i am using the value "image/*" its limit the user to all the images but if i am using a custom limit e.g. "image/jpeg,image/gif,image/png,image/bmp" its show all the limits in the select box but the default value for ths user is "All Files". In Chrome and IE10 its working as needed.
2. When i am trying to limit to "swf" files using the value "application/x-shockwave-flash" its show "All Files". In Chrome and IE10 its working as needed.
I am using Windows 7.

Well, it seems you are doing what it says in the documentation: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/HTML/Element/Input#attr-accept
Will Firefox actually let you submit a file that isn't on the list? In other words, is the problem the accept is ignored, or that the dialog isn't displaying the filter?
Have you had a chance to search for any open bugs in Bugzilla?
Hi, The Firefox select the "All Files" by default but if i click on the filter select box in the upload files window i can see all the filters that i made *.jpg,*.png and so on. The problem is that its need to select the filters by default.
Anyway i search it and this is the bug reported: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=826176
Chrome,IE10 and Opera are working correctly.
Thanks for your answer.
