I wasn't able to submit the file C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\first checkboxes should not work\s.html at a text/html attachment to bug 54136 with IE or Mozilla, but I was able to submit it using Netscape 4.75. Later, I played with the same attachment on bug 31322 (a "test bug") using just IE, and decided that bugzilla didn't like the fact that the directory name was long. not accepted: C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\first checkboxes should not work\s.html C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\first checkboxes should not work\longerfilename.html accepted: c:\windows\desktop\s.html Error recieved using IE: You must select a legal mime type. 'text/html ----------------------------- 7d02448590 Content-Disposition: form-data; name="othertype" -------------------- ---------7d024485' simply will not do. Error recieved using Mozilla: You must select which kind of file you have.
maybe it didn't like spaces in the name... you try a short name with spaces in it?
I had a very similar problem with another file (a jpg) that wasn't at a convoluted path. I wasn't able to submit it with any browser (bugzilla gave different error messages for each one), but I got it to work in IE by setting a proxy. The default, "transparent" proxy, had been caused me other problems, such as not being able to stay logged into slashdot without using random urls (http://www.slashdot.org/?=uoy3xi4v). Probably invalid, but I wonder why I was getting such strange error messages from bugzilla.

Invalid. This cannot be a Bugzilla bug. The user was sending an invalid MIME type. Gerv
clearing milestone for invalid/wontfix/worksforme/duplicate so they'll show up as untriaged if they get reopened.
