Description James MacGregor 2013-07-30 15:07:14 PDT
Plupload's "Add Files" button doesn't seem to work in Firefox 22 (possibly others, though it does work in Chrome). Clicking it results in it blinking briefly, but nothing else. The "Drag Files Here" option does work, however, so that can be used as a temporary workaround. 

We appear to be using plupload 1.5.2. "Upgrading" to 1.5.7 by simply replacing the contents of lib/pkp/js/lib/plupload with the 1.5.7 download doesn't resolve the problem. Searching for "plupload add files button not working firefox" returns a lot of threads on the plupload forum, but the discussions are generally beyond my javascript understanding.

The plupload2 beta fixes the problem with FF22.  I'm not sure if the fix will be backported to the 1.5.x line -- plupload2 seems to have a lot of other re-written components as well.

Hi Jason, 

Sorry to reopen this -- but this appears to be broken in IE8 at least (Windows XP). I'll try on IE9/Windows 7 this weekend. At the moment in IE8 I actually can't see the plupload dialogue at all -- see attached screenshot.
Comment 7 Jason Nugent 2013-09-13 16:22:08 PDT
It's a different problem, actually. Bruno's done some IE testing and file uploading is broken in general.  This bug isn't the cause (he rolled back the commit and tested the original).  We broke something when we were doing Js Linting I think.
Comment 8 Alec Smecher 2013-11-21 16:23:18 PST
Bruno, do you mind testing file uploading with IE again, per Jason's last comment?
Comment 9 beghelli 2013-12-09 15:35:18 PST
Still not working for IE8. But works for FF, Opera and Chrome.

I was wrong, it works with IE8. I needed only to install flash player. Maybe we should build a warning telling that, so users will know what they have to do.

Introduce warning message for missing uploader
