I am on MacOS. I am using the most recent version of Firefox (75.0). When I go to upload a file in either Gmail or Google Drive, the filesystem dialog will not come up. The browser freezes for a few seconds, I get the beach ball, then it comes back with nothing have happened. I have refreshed Firefox completely, I have tried this in safe mode without any extensions, and none of it helps.

I tried a non-Google webmail solution as well and the same thing happens.

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.

I tried all recommended actions of your help pages but without success, including desactivation of fire wall and firefox in without failure mode (in French : mode sans échec). Upload is working well with Google Chrome. Thanks in advance for your help.

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.

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.

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

Firefox is holding file in open state.

This is my workflow: 1. download file to hdd 2. try to delete file (or move) from hdd - Access denied. 3. Close Firefox 4. try to delete file - OK

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.

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.

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.

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.
