From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020313 BuildID: 2002031312 When a form is posted with a blank input type=file it is posted in the _post method insted of ignored. This is causing a number of scripting issues for me. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: See description
I'm experiencing this, too. With Mozilla 0.9.9, an empty file upload box, submitted with enctype="multipart/form-data" to a Java servlet running under Tomcat (using com.oreilly.servlet to parse the form data), causes the servlet to get an empty string parameter. This doesn't occur with Mozilla 0.9.8, Netscape 4.7 or Konqueror; with those browsers, the servlet either gets a file parameter containing data, or nothing at all.
