UW hangs on upload in some circumstances
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Firefox only

See discussion at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Upload_help#.22Special:UploadWizard.22_seems_stuck

I have been unable to reproduce this when uploading files manually, nor have I seen this in any environment other than beta cluster commons.

When running the automated test for UW for Firefox only against beta commons, UW starts to upload a .png file, the thumbnail is there, but the upload never completes.

Error Console shows the message

Timestamp: 04/18/2013 01:37:53 PM
Error: TypeError: result is null

Line: 109

I am not completely sure that the production issue and the browser test issue are related, but it seems possible at least.

Thanks Andre for that link. I doubt if this problem is due to some FF plugin or because of some deprecated properties in FF as looks at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Godot13/Sandbox/Upload_Wizard_problem (the error log)

I have uploaded a lot of images in the last hour or so using Firefox 20.0 and commons.wikimedia.org and I could not reproduce the problem. Everything worked just fine.

Should we close the bug? As far as I understood "Commons:Upload help" the reported also said everything works fine for him now.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
