Uploading files to snapfish works when running under Win2K,
but doesn't work when running under Win98SE.
Uninstalling  Gecko/20030125 and installing Mozilla 1.2.1 
does work for Win98SE.
By "Does not work" I mean once a picture is selected to upload
and the upload button is pressed the upload popup appears
however the upload never completes.
I used the JS debugger and traced through some of the JS code
after the button was pressed

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create an account at snapfish, it's free
when finished click 'signup now'
2.Skip the magazine signup form. Click 'start using snapfish' button at bottom
of page.
3. When you get to your home Tab
Click the upload photos button on middle left side of page.
4. Give your album a name and click 'Choose this album'
5. Select a small gif or jpeg file to upload and click 'upload photos'

The Jan 25 version of Mozilla was the last software installed on the
Win98 machine. We also tried rebooting, and that didn't help/

I experience the same effect on WinNT4 SP 6 with build 20030129 on EVERY upload
page I tried (namely: the Outlook Web Access of my company and freemail.web.de) 

It seems that only a very small part of the data is transmitted to the server.
My Kerio Personal Firewall showed that about 8-10 KB (of a 46 KB plus
http-request data) are transmitted from the browser to the server. And after
some time the connection disappears from the PFW list of open connections while
Mozilla endlessly continues to show the loading state.
