Opera browser - upload timeout.

    I know this is unsupported, but I'll report it anyway. I've been here for a month or so.
    Uploading an image will timeout after 10-15 secs. This is barely enough time to click into two directories and find a file.
    "The plugin has crashed" shows up (flash).
    A new button "choose" (not the flash "choose photos" one) will sometimes show up, which doesn't have the same problem but it doesn't always show up.)

    Opera 12.16, Flash 11.2.202.262. Linux Lubuntu 12.04.

    Other than that Opera under linux works just fine for everything else.
    I reckon if you can fix this, you can include Opera as a browser.

      I would advise upgrading to the latest stable version of Opera.
      You may also want to consider using Firefox.
      It sounds like the issue is related to Flash, so you can use the non-Flash upload tool.

        Tks. Yes I was suspecting something like that. Thing is the non-Flash upload tool doesn't always show. I think it's supposed to show after a fail (which it does sometimes).

          I think that you need to explicitly select the non-Flash uploader each time.

            Yes, if I click 'upload' enough times, the non-flash button eventually does show up. But not all the time. However, it does show up all the time in the section where I'm not editing, i.e the Photos section has no problem. I'll just use that instead, tks.
