Picture uploading not working for one user


(Christoph) #1

I have tried uploading (i.e. pasting) this screenshot on try.discourse.org, on meta.discourse.org and on my own site and it failed to upload on all three (stuck at 100%).

The last time we looked at this it was specific to you.

I just uploaded it fine.

Weird. I just tried on try.discourse.org and all of a sudden it also uploaded (same browser). Then I changed to this tab and tried the same and I got this:

Then I wrote the above and tried pasting again, and now it works (deleted it again though). But now I have it stuck on "uploading 100% " even though I am not uploading anything:

I have to manually cancel the supposed upload to be able to post this reply.

So what is this? Is this a browser problem (I use Chrome) or what could possibly cause this?

Who knows…

  • browser plugins (try in a different browser you do not normally use, try in “safe mode”)
  • network issues (try on your phone vs your desktop so the network is different)
  • proxy or other upstream entity interfering with your content (anti-virus, routers, etc… try taking your same laptop / device to a coffee shop or friend’s house)

Anything red in your browser’s console?
