Unable to clear file upload fields in web pages.

When visiting any site which has the option to upload a file, I am unable to clear the field if I change my mind about uploading a file.

A website has a BROWSE or UPLOAD field and button. Pressing the button brings up the open file dialog. I select a file and select open in the dialog. If I then click on the field containing the path/file, I am presented with the open file dialog. I cannot clear or edit the field on the web page.

I originally thought it was something with the web page I visited, but then found another page did the same thing.
