Build ID: 2001112508 on Win2k and Linux. Regression as it does work with Netscape 6.2 (not Mozilla 0.9.6). Steps to reproduce: 1. Load URL http://sourceforge.net/project/admin/editreleases.php?package_id=11770&release_id=61920&group_id=12177 2. Enter 'Test' in the 'Release Notes' box, 3. Hit 'Submit/Refresh' button, 4. Data wasn't actually accepted as 'Release Notes' is still empty, 5. SF draws errors such as: Warning: fopen("","r") - Success in /usr/local/sourceforge.net/www/project/admin/editreleases.php on line 50 Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid File-Handle resource in /usr/local/sourceforge.net/www/project/admin/editreleases.php on line 50 Warning: fopen("","r") - Success in /usr/local/sourceforge.net/www/project/admin/editreleases.php on line 61 Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid File-Handle resource in /usr/local/sourceforge.net/www/project/admin/editreleases.php on line 61 Expected results: working flawlessly, it works with IE6, Netscape 4.76, Netscape 6.2, not Mozilla 0.9.6 and later. You have to be an admin to access above URL, if you have a SF account, let me know, I'll give you admin rights for this bug. Otherwise, we can also setup a dummy project to access this File Release form.
Created attachment 59196 [details] HTTP transaction (via sniffer) with Mozilla 2001112508 With Mozilla, two items are missing from the transaction: [...] -----------------------------104195057818304962681319551376 Content-Disposition: form-data; name="uploaded_notes"; filename="" -----------------------------104195057818304962681319551376 Content-Disposition: form-data; name="uploaded_changes"; filename="" [...]
Both missing fields are these in HTML source code: <input type="file" name="uploaded_changes" size="30"> and <input type="file" name="uploaded_notes" size="30"> So I guess a testcase would easily follow, perhaps it's even a dupe of an already reported bug.
Created attachment 59307 [details] Testcase with input type=file incorrectly transmitted by Mozilla Click on the attachment, then enter something in the textarea ('test' for example) then click Submit. Either with a sniffer where you can see latest Mozilla build (2001112603) does not transmit the 'input type=file', or with the results from the POST where you can see the var is null. With IE6 or Netscape 4.76, var is 'none' and a sniffer shows it's transmitted.
Changing Severity to blocker as it's one of the biggest Web sites, and this behaviour has obviously changed since some weeks and might block many other Web sites.

Note that SourceForge ought not to rely on empty file controls being successful. See http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/interact/forms.html#h-17.13.2, which says: - "The current value of a file select is a list of one or more file names. Upon submission of the form, the contents of each file are submitted with the rest of the form data." - "If a control doesn't have a current value when the form is submitted, user agents are not required to treat it as a successful control." Taken together, these statements allow browsers to treat a file select that specifies no file names as unsuccessful, that is, to omit them from the submitted data. In other words, Mozilla's behavior is allowable, if inconvenient. I gather that it will be changed back, but other browsers that comply with HTML 4.01 may not. If SourceForge is intended to be robust, it should accommodate the absence of data for empty file inputs.
should we make this an evang then?
I'd vote for both Evangelism and revert to original behaviour because it might have broken many more sites, especially in an Intranet environment, where "input type=file" are used a lot.
well bug 111963 is going to fix the issue on mozilla's side and I'll reopen this and send to tech evangelism then
