UW hangs on upload in some circumstances
Closed, DeclinedPublic


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

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.

seems to have overtaken by history
