Browser issue Attachments freeze on upload

I've been hundreds of times in this situation but I don't know the exact steps to reproduce it.
The problem is when you upload attachments one by one it can somehow freeze. That means that you still can upload them but they won't show up in the attachments list (but in fact they are already uploaded). The upload overlay also won't close by itself, you have to click 'Cancel'. The only thing you are left to do is to create a thread (or to post a message) in order to see them.
I am using default uploader, however I have Flash installed with FlashControl but XenForo still won't allow me to use flash uploader. Browser: Google Chrome 28 on Win 8.

It's not something I've been able to reproduce. Anyone else?

It sounds like some sort of JS error or failure. Are there any error logs in the console? Having the network tab open may help give us some more information if it happens (but that would need to be done before it happens).

Just tried to upload an image. Here is what I've got in console:

Part of that is the actual content being returned, but at the beginning there's a bunch of CSS added to JSON results. I think it's one of your extensions manipulating the request content incorrectly.

This part specifically:
Code:
object[type$="x-shockwave-flash"]:not([classid]),object[type$="futuresplash"]:not([classid]),embed[type$="x-shockwave-flash"],embed[type$="futuresplash"]{display:none !important}
That seems to fit being from your selective Flash disabling extensions.

That's strange. It doesn't matter if Flash is blocked or not by this plugin — this issue occurs in both situations. However if I disable it uploading works fine. But I can't get rid of this addon, I use it on every site. And it's actually the first site that was broken by this addon.

It looks like they're mostly just hiding Flash output by adding CSS. Looks like there might be a situation where it adds the CSS incorrectly (I believe we return the output here in text/plain for technical reasons).

The bug still occurs. Both for html or flash-based upload. This could be fixed with a use of HTML5 File API, more specifically → HTML5 Multiple file upload. I know IE<10 doesn't support it, but they could have a flash fallback.
Or you can use this plugin, it provides support even for IE7: http://fineuploader.com/
