I was not able to reproduce using Ubuntu's build or Firefox 2 RC3. I'm using Java(TM) Plug-in 1.5.0_06-b05. Which version of Java are you using, Paul? (It's listed in about:plugins.)

So you're not seeing anything like bug 428997 at all with Firefox 3 beta builds and the Java uploader, Kyle? What OS are you on?
