Different problems uploading on different systems (2 posts)

    On Windows 8, Chrome and firefox, on my laptop I can upload doc, docx and pdf files no problem. But on the PCs next to me, also windows 8, it fails to upload doc and docx in any browser, saying:

    "There was an error with your submission

    This kind of file is not allowed. Please, try again selecting other file.:
    (my filename)"

    on my laptop where everything works with chrome and firefox, it rarely works in internet explorer (8) - but intermittently it works. 95% of the time it just takes me to /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php which dies with a browser-based error message "This page can't be displayed" and a button for fixing connection problems.

    any ideas?

    here's an example page - the form is at the bottom of the page and you can see the error messages when you try uploading: http://seojobcentre.co.uk/london/2013/07/16/michael-page-marketing-head-of-online/

    there are other javascripts on the site but when ive disabled them before it didnt change the problem at all. i think it's got to be a bug in the plugin, but im really struggling to find any properly build plugin like this one and would really love to see it working across different common systems.

    note that there's absolutely no difference between my pcs and laptops except that one's a laptop. so it really seems weird that it workson laptop but not on pcs. the i.e. bugs i half expect, but not the alternate pc bugs

    That seems like a bug, I'll see what I can do to fix it. Could you do me a favor and add

    add_filter( 'fu_is_debug', '__return_true' );

    In your theme's functions.php and let me know what MIME-type is displayed in error message on machines that are failing to upload.

    95% of the time it just takes me to /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php which dies with a browser-based error message "This page can't be displayed" and a button for fixing connection problems.

    This looks like a server configuration issue. Either the file is too big or request times out because of the slow connection.
