Fixed Upload button problems in FF

A user reported that clicking the "upload a file" button in flash upload mode caused problems in FF. It seems that the dialog box opens up behind the browser window, appearing as if clicking the button didn't work.

I can replicate this too using FF 31/32 in Windows 7.

I suspect this is a browser issue rather than an XF problem (as I don't know how XF could affect the upload dialog box position), but it doesn't occur using other flash based upload sites, so I thought a bug report may be warranted.

Unfortunately, I cannot confirm this. It's working as expected for me:

Windows 7, Mozilla Firefox 31.0.

This generally works as expected for me, though it did happen once.

Unfortunately, I doubt there's really anything that we can realistically do to change this.

@Mike this seems to me like it is a general problem with Firefox + Windows + Flash. I tried a forum which is running IP.Board 3.? and had the same problem there.

Updating to the last SWFUpload JS file (version 2.5.0 Beta 3 - released in 2010) seems to fix this specific problem (ref). But it could be a good thing to find a flash alternative before XenForo 2.x, like this addon released & sponsored by Tinhte and coded by xfrocks.

I also have this problem...anyone know of a fix
Option 1:
Edit the file xenforo/js/swfupload/swfupload.min.js and add at the end this code.
Option 2:
Edit the file xenforo/js/swfupload/swfupload.min.js and replace its full content with this code (from SWFUpload 2.50 beta 3)
Option 3:
Install this addon. It will use a html5 library to upload files instead of a flash solution script. This is probably the best solution.

Thanks Mate...installed Option 3 and it is working ok now...not sure what mobile devices will have any problems yet though

Would this be fixed in the new security patch, as it's altering the SWFUpload module?
