File Progress
« on: August 27, 2010, 06:08:39 PM »
For years now, this bug has been around. It affects the latest beta too.

The [progress] section, will 'lock-up' when you submit a file to upload. I have seen it happen in all browsers, and all templates.

It prevents reliable file progress :) I tried to create a progress bar with some JavaScript, and even that just 'stops' after the first or second request.

Maybe it is unavoidable, maybe it is a bug with HFS. I dunno, for now I have just opted for an image that makes it 'look like' something is happening. But to get accurate feedback this is an issue to overcome. In the past I have included file progress, but the only information I or anyone else really wants to know, is upload progress, and without being able to request it every second or so, to get an updated figure, its not very useful!

The only thing i know resembling what you said is that Firefox is not supporting the automatic refresh of progress in a frame.
That's the way it was done in the 2.2 template. It was working in IE, if i remember correctly. I consider it a bug of the browser, since no request was coming to the server, despite the command.
In current default template i changed completely method and it is working fine, AFAIK. Isn't for you?
