Description Jakob Petsovits 2008-10-03 12:37:16 UTC
Since Drupal 6.x, JavaScript-powered file uploads don't work in Drupal. This happens with core Drupal as well as extension modules like filefield or imagefield, and works with several other browsers. I set up a Drupal HEAD test site for you, drop me a mail if you think you need an SSH account on the server too.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Make sure JavaScript is enabled. (It works with JavaScript disabled, and also works if you just press "Save" instead of first doing "Attach".)
2. Go to http://head.petsovits.at/node/1/edit and log in with "khtml-hackerz" as username and the codename for KJS's new bytecode interpreter as password (lowercase). The steps to reproduce are present there as well :)
3. Extend the "File attachments" field set below.
4. Select any file in a format given in the extension list.
5. Press "Attach" and witness Konqueror stalling the upload. The file isn't even sent to the server in the first place, so you can't really clutter the files directory.

Doing the same with Firefox and other browsers works, and a fix for this would *really* be nice as it affects all Drupal versions from 6.x on (which correlates to a large amount of sites).

Many thanks for the report and the test site. Will take a look. (Though I need to dig out my patch for auto-reindenting sources first, since jQuery is the release version..)

Comment 2 Maksim Orlovich 2008-10-03 17:22:02 UTC
Actually, um, any chance you could replace /misc/jquery.js?4
with this version:

...my debugger fanciness seems not to be fancy enough for something this compressed

Thanks again for going to such length to help us fix this.
Comment 3 Jakob Petsovits 2008-10-03 20:54:10 UTC
Oops. Er, sure. I also replaced jquery.form.js with the unpacked version [1], just in case. (All .js files should be plaintext now.)

Setting this stuff up is not so much work either, I'm doing Drupal development anyways :P
Thanks to YOU for taking this stuff on and saving me from Firefox and other non-integrated browsers!

Comment 4 Maksim Orlovich 2008-10-05 02:48:04 UTC
Thanks. Workaround: disabling popup blocking (!). The code seem to submit the form into a hidden iframe; (I think I had tried to debug something like this before). Investigating further.

[Also seems to be possible to trigger a konqueror crash, which will be nice to fix, too]
Comment 5 Maksim Orlovich 2008-10-05 03:53:25 UTC
The following is a candidate fix, but needs further thought, since some of the code involved I am not familiar with.

(P.S. With respect to the other Drupal report, from the description it's likely that the cause may be an another bug the fix for which I have pending, so I'll look at that after that fix is finalized, in hope of not having to do any additional work)

SVN commit 875819 by orlovich:

Fix how  we find existing frames for the purpose of form target= submission.
This fixes file upload for drupal 6/jquery.form --- its submit  was incorrectly
blocked as a popup attempt

As we refactored this method, also use it for window.open, fixing us blocking 
opens to _self along the way.

While testing this, I noticed that we can crash konq if we do window.open 
and one of the frames doesn't yet have a part yet. Added a workaround 
suggested by dfaure for now, as the proper fix is too risky and should be 
done on unstable branch only.

Comment 7 Jakob Petsovits 2008-10-27 19:28:08 UTC
Thanks a lot! That was like my favorite KHTML bug (apart from the more recent derstandard.at crash), I just love to see it working.

Also, now that both of my reported Drupal problems are fixed, I've taken down the test site again as it's an easy target for crackers, running an unreleased development version and stuff. If you need a Drupal test site again, you know where to ask :)
