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.

    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.

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