If we have a page that has hidden inputs on a form after a submit button with a file input on the form (see below).
And we submit the page over https to a second page and the file is of a certain size (2MB failed, 200K worked, estimated 1MB cutoff) the hidden values get removed from the https request.
For example:
[code]
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>

<head>
<title>TUSK - Upload New Content</title>
</head>

<body>
<form action="/tusk/management/content/addedit/course/HSDB/1277" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="POST" id="content" name="content">
<input type="hidden" name="submit_check" value="1">
<input type="file" name="file" value="Browse...">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Save and Continue">
<input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Create Blank Document">
<input type="hidden" name="page" value="add" id="page_id">
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="" id="action_id">
<input type="hidden" name="content_type" value="" id="content_type_id">
</form>
 </body>
</html>
[/code]

Fails to send the "page" input (and others) to the next script. Using live http headers showed:

If I change the original form by moving the hidden fields above the submit buttons it works.
For example:
[code]
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>

<head>
<title>TUSK - Upload New Content</title>
</head>

<body>
<form action="/tusk/management/content/addedit/course/HSDB/1277" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="POST" id="content" name="content">
<input type="hidden" name="submit_check" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="page" value="add" id="page_id">
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="" id="action_id">
<input type="hidden" name="content_type" value="" id="content_type_id">
<input type="file" name="file" value="Browse...">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Save and Continue">
<input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Create Blank Document">
</form>
 </body>
</html>
[/code]

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use code in details above to create a web page
2. Submit it over https
3. Watch live headers
Actual Results:  
The live headers do not contain all of the form paramaters.

Expected Results:  
All form parameters on the form should be submitted.

This was tested on various Windows XP machines.
It does not appear to be an issue with 1.5.0.9.
We first noticed this issue in Fire fox 2.0.0 but could not figure out what was causing it.
I tried the test with OS X and it seems to be unaffected.
