    Uploading Files Doesn't Work

    When I try to add an attachment (to insert pictures in a post), I click on the "Add New Files" button and a blank window opens that I can't do anything in. It doesn't matter if I'm using IE or Firefox. Is this a known issue? Is there a fix? Or is that feature disabled for me?

    Thank you

    Select the blank part of the new window and hit Tab. Does focus shift to something (like an entry field) lost in the vastness of the window?
    Stupidity got us into this mess - why can't it get us out?

    I have the same problem using OS X 10.5.8 and Safari 4.0.4. In this screenshot, I've clicked the "add Files" button. If I drag a picture file into that smaller box, the file just opens. It isn't uploaded. I have no trouble with pics I host myself, as you can see.

    Focus shifts to the address bar of the "Manage Attachments" window when I do as you said.

    I hadn't thought of dragging files into that window iTunes style. I just tried that, and I get the same result as you. The picture opens in a new window and the "manage attahments" window dissapears at the same time. There are no options to do anything with the file. This is with both Firefox and IE. I just noticed that there's a new Firefox available, so I'll report if I find it works differently with the new one.

    I find it odd that more people aren't reporting the problem.

    I saw that an upgrade was just completed... I am still having this problem.
