Anytime I try to upload a file (like a resume) to a website using the file upload dialogue, opening the file causes Firefox to completely stop responding. closing the dialogue box at that point causes Firefox to close. If I wait it out, Firefox does not recover.

I have reset Firefox. I have cleared my startup cache. I have restarted my computer. The problem has persisted for weeks despite numerous attempts at fixing it.

I can't upload a screenshot for obvious reasons.

I'm seeing some weird behavior in FF.

I have an HTML page that allows the user to click on a link to trigger a file upload to a remote server. The file being uploaded is usually > 2GB and takes a LONG time to upload (sometimes > 1.5hrs due to slow link to remote server).

What we see is the remote server ends up with multiple corrupted versions of the same file.

Could it be that FF is silently timing out waiting for a HTTP response and then retrying to upload the file? I can't think of any other explanation for the multiple files, since the user only clicks once on the hyperlink.

Thank you, Dan

Whenever I try to upload a picture or anything it hangs the entire browser, can't access any website. Other browsers do not do the same like Google Chrome. I have to keep closing my browser down and restarting it and then I am able to browse as normal but whenever I try to upload something it just hangs.

Also, FireFox is so much slower these days I have to revert to Chrome, such as YouTube page loads slower, videos sometimes stutter when skipping. It doesn't do this in Chrome so it's not my connection.
