I'm not sure that's true, is it?? Install LiveHTTPHeaders into firefox and it will give you a better picture of what's going on. However, for uploading this should be pretty much irrelevant. The browser's take on the MIME type is ignored.

Ya, uploading... I'm a bit stumped as well, it works fine in other browsers... I'll find a solution soon enough though

out of interest, what do you mean when you say you set the parameter in a form?

I installed it a while ago, and it didn't give me much...

I'm not the only person having these problems:
