    Default Unable to Browse for Files in Manage Attachments.

    At Grahame's suggestion I have attached copies of my three posts in the General Discussion Forum under the same title, which I hope are self explanatory:

    "It is a while since I posted any photos. Has the system changed? When I click on Manage Attachments now the Choose Files button is greyed out. If I remember correctly clicking on Choose Files used to bring up an option to browse the computer for new files to add to a post. I cannot see how to add new files now. What have I missed?

    Thanks Grahame,

    Tried that but no go.

    I got a choice of Upload Image from Computer, or from a URL. Upload from Computer is greyed out there too: upload from URL seems to be OK, i.e. not greyed out. My old files are still there, but I can't get it to accept new ones for uploading. Clicking on the greyed out area in either Manage Attachments or Insert Image sometimes locks the screen. Added Later After I tried the Insert Image button following your suggestion the screen was locked. I tried to log off - no luck. I had to turn off the power to the computer and restart to clear it.
    Using Windows 7 if that is relevant, but this has never been a problem before.

    By the way, I am logged in, so that is not the problem.

    Hi Grahame,

    Stranger and stranger. I just tried to upload the same photos on another computer running the latest and right up to date version of Ubuntu Linux and using Firefox. I was using Chrome with the original Windows 7 computer previously.

    I get exactly the same result with the Linux computer as I got previously with the Windows computer, i.e. in both Manage Attachments and Insert Image the "search computer for files" is greyed out ,while the sourcing of images from a URL alternative is apparently still available.

    At the moment I am not the only one with this problem: at least one other Forum member (YBAF) is having the same trouble.

    Frank."

    I tried a different combination of operating system and browser, Windows 7 + Firefox, and Manage Attachments is working normally with that combination. It is also working normally with an old copy of Linux Ubuntu 16.04 + Firefox so my problem does not appear to be related to the Forum software.

    Regards,

    Frank.
