    The Flash attachment uploader gets stuck at 100% when using a socks proxy.

    • Set up your browser to use a socks proxy. If you run OSX or linux it is easy to test on your own computer: http://www.mikeash.com/ssh_socks.html
    • Click Upload a File.
    • Observe the progress bar getting stuck at 100% and not letting you embed or having the attachment show up at the end of the post.

    Unfortunately, this is likely down to issues in Flash itself -- specifically, Flash doesn't use the browser proxy settings and can't do proxy authentication. (It may actually use IE's on Windows.) Unfortunately, as such, we can't really do much about it.

    Possible solution=> let the user choose, if he want to use the flash uploader or not.

    If somebody is using the (default) flash uploader and he reports problems to me, i could disable it for him in the user edit form in the acp and say him to try again:D

    Does this thread help ?

    Are you using Chrome ?

    I Googled: Socks Proxy flash uploader chrome

    I had similar problems with adding attachments from my Networked Drive.
    The latest chrome fixed all these problems.

    I can connect without a proxy just fine, I just prefer to use one.

    This means it is probably a problem with the flash uploader itself.

    I used to have this problem with Gmail, but I don't anymore.

    This has been a major annoyance for me when browsing from work. It would be nice to be able to quickly toggle from the flash uploader to a basic uploader from the thread.
