Firefox has stopped uploading files of more than 500k. In Yahoo mail on smaller files the green upload bar shows and the file loads when it is complete. On larger files the green progress bar never shows up and eventually the message is check you internet connection.

There are no problems when using IE or Chrome.

The two machines which have problems are both Win7. A new Win10 machine is OK using the same add on's (Adblock and FX Chrome).

Firefox has been started in safe mode, had all add on's removed and had a clean install. None of these steps have solved the problem.

When I try to upload a file (multiple websites), firefox crashes without warning, doesn't open crash reporter, about:crashes reveals, "No crash reports have been submitted."

Everything is fine until I move my mouse into the popup window to select my file for upload.

This started happening summer of 2018 and is continuing. Very annoying. This is completely repeating everytime.

The same website upload works from IE/Edge or Chrome.

Whenever I'm trying to upload even the tiniest thing, like a cover photo on Twitter, the upload loading circle stays indefinitely and normal browsing completely stops working.

Pages stop loading and looking at my connection, both incoming and outgoing packets are dwindled to a couple hundred every tick.

Firefox does not open the 'Select File' dialog box if I click on the 'Select Files' button on websites. Websites I tried include virustotal.com, fineuploader.com/demos.html and even the 'Add Images' possibility on this support site I'm asking my question. Selecting files through Flash is working, though (e.g. uploadify.com), as well as dragging files on the button does work. I followed the advices given here, hence Firefox is currently opened in Safe Mode (which still does not allow to select files). How can I solve this behaviour without switching to a stable version (the current FF 38 stable is not available as 64 bit) or restoring it (through about:support; don't know if it would work either)?

Hello

I dont know if this is even technically possible.

I love OSX notifications (I am on 10.10.2 yosemite). I would love to receive notifications after certain web pages have completed their activity. I need this as it seems more and more apps are moving to web browser technology rather than an separate app. So now I have all this activity happening in Fx, and i have to keep clickign on each tab.. to see if its finsihed yet...

for example: I upload a file to my seedbox via the seedbox's file manager browser. No notifications received. So i have to keep checking when this file is finished uploading.

Any ideas to help me improve my workflow? I am thinking i want notifications to come thru my osx notification.

thankyou

I am trying to upload audio files (MP3) to my web site. Every time FireFox updates, it will not allow uploading, it just stays in an endless uploading loop. I have to use Task Manager to escape the loop.

I am using Net Solutions website builder tool. FireFox has worked well up until about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I used IE and it works flawlessly.  ???

Web site: www.floridacrossroads.com

Tried two computers - Win10 and Win7.

I refreshed FireFox browsers on both computers last week and got it to work, but that is a PIA, and I would rather switch permanently now to Chrome or IE if this is going to continue to be an issue with FireFox.

Thank you, John Champlain

I've been using Firefox and the Magic Mail online server for all my email activity for many years with no problems. After recently upgrading to W8.1, I cannot upload photos as attachments to emails. The error I get is "Request Timeout...Server timeout waiting for the HTTP request from the client." The tab shows "connecting" with the circle and dot rotating counterclockwise.

I can upload photos to Magic Mail when using Internet Explorer or Chrome on this computer with no problems.

If I restart the computer, I can upload photos to Magic Mail on Firefox for a while, but it quits working after the computer is put to sleep and reawakened.

I've tried deleting cookies associated with Magic Mail, but that didn't help. Neither did closing and restarting the browser.

I'm using Firefox 40.0.3 and Windows 8.1 with all the latest updates.

Been using Firefox as main browser for years, a couple of updates have come through in the last 2 weeks and now I can no longer upload files to the likes of Facebook, Outlook e-mails & photobox. The same problem is replicated in Chrome but everything is working fine in IE (which I haven't used for years).

I can still upload files which are a few KB in size, but anything approaching 1 MB or above just stalls and fails.

Last time I managed to upload larger files (i.e. 1.3MB) successfully using Firefox was 16/12

Using Firefox 43.0.2, Chrome 47.0.2526.106 m and IE 11 for Windows 7

Operating System is Windows 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1

Adobe Flash is up to date and I've tried clearing the cache, resetting firefox and running in safe mode - no joy.

Using firefox to upload files online, being this a simple pdf document or a video file, prevents me from deleting the file from my hard drive, once the process is completed. Once I quit the web browser, deleting the file is possible. It looks like firefox is keeping the link to a file in constant use even after the website at which the file was used is no longer opened. Am I missing some something in firefox's properties settings?

My Imac running Mavericks has been functioning perfectly and I have never had a problem uploading files to sites or applications online until two days ago when suddenly I cannot upload anything to any place within FIREFOX. I have found a few places where I can drag and drop a file to upload it but not many (including here - tried to drag an image to upload for you and it froze the page, reloaded it and now I am typing this whole mess over again!) I am a graphic designer and send files through email, and I also build and update websites for several clients, so this is a HUGE problem. I have NO trouble uploading or finding files within applications or programs on my computer itself even now, but the minute I try to open the finder to select and upload a file into FIREFOX I get a blank finder window with just the spinning "loading" symbol and it NEVER finishes and load the window. This is unacceptable. ---- By the way, I also have a Toshiba laptop and it has NO problems uploading files into Firefox. Does anyone know if there is a Firefox patch or something for Mac computers that can help?

I updated my Nvidia GeForce 460 to version 347.88. I also had a Firefox update on March 13, 2015. Now my Back, Reload, Bookmark, Home, Hello, and Menu buttons will not show up. My tabs are blocked out, and I don't have an New Tab nor Exit button on them. My Exit button for Firefox is about half normal, can still see the Min/Max and other half of the Exit button, but it seems shaded.

I can upload the xml file using IE 11. I can also upload a .pdf file using Firefox as before as well. I have done all the clearing of cache steps, etc. but the problem remains. I have even uninstalled the program using "add remove program" via my control panel but the result still remains, I can not upload a simple .xml file and I was able to do so before my last upgrade.
