    Every time I upload an image using the new media popup I get this error but the image still appears in the gallery and can be used.

    What does the error mean?

    Nope, dont work in firefox either, it does go through the download, but the image isn't there at all.
    In IE I can use the image in manage->media library by copying and pasteing it in to the post

    Whenever I tried uploading an image, I keep getting this message:

    HTTP error.
    An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later.

    Anyone else experience this?

    I'm running on Firefox.

    Same here, getting 'Specified file failed upload test.

    Using IE 7:

    When I click the 'Add Media - Add An Image' icon on the Write Post page I receive a browser error. Details show:

    Line: 136
    Char: 2
    Error: Object Expected
    Code:0
    Url: <Root Url>/wp-admin/media-upload.php?post_id=18&type=image&

    Continuing, I'm getting 'Specified file failed upload test." error on the image upload. I cannot click the 'Show' link' though the image file name is shown. The Gallery link amount number increases and clicking it again shows the file name. Clicking 'Media Library' again shows the file name.

    Manage > Media Library Shows the image and all links appear to work properly though I do not see the full path to the image anywhere. :(

    Using Firefox:

    When I click the 'Add Media - Add An Image' icon on the Write Post page I do not receive a browser error.

    Choosing the file upload it allows browsing for file, it uploads it and displays all the info.

    However, when I click 'Insert into Post' the media window goes blank-white and the photo is not inserted in the post.

    Manage > Media Library Shows the image and all links appear to work properly

    Same problem here, I'm afraid. In WP 2.5, I can see the uploaded images (without thumbnails), but I can't insert them. I also get the "Specified file failed upload test"-message.

    @cjane: I get the same error
    "HTTP error.
    An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later."
    when ever I try to upload a photo with the Media Manager. I'm also using FF 2.0.0.13.
    If anybody have a solution I would love to hear it.

    At first I thought that maybe not all the files were uploaded correctly via FTP, but I've now done the transfer a few times and I'm pretty sure I have all the needed files on the server.

    De-activating Bad Behaviour helps. Now the multi upload of pictures works for me.

    maybe a stupid question, but De-activating 'Bad Behaviour'.
    Bad Behaviour is a plugin?

    By the way I have the same problems.. Vista with IE7, latest flashplayer... bla bla bla.. you know.

    Uploading pics gives the same error as described, can't select pics from the media library.

    Same problem. After uploading the image, there's a blank white box and I can't even insert the image to my post. Now, I don't know what to do. Do I have to go back to WP2.3.3? Unlike the first release candidate for WP 2.5, some minor problems but i can insert the image to my post. And i just updated my site to this latest version. Yay!

    @avinews: sorry I should have been more elaborate. Yes "Bad Behaviour" is a anti spam plug-in for wordpress.

    @rosgar That happened to me earlier too. But then, I tried adding this into my .htaccess

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </IfModule>

    It seems to work now. No more blank white box.

    Also having problems, getting 'Specified file failed upload test.

    Using IE 7 & Vista:

    When I click the 'Add Media - Add An Image' icon on the Write Post page I receive a browser error. Details show:

    Line: 136
    Char: 2
    Error: Object Expected
    Code:0
    Url: <Root Url>/wp-admin/media-upload.php?post_id=18&type=image&

    In addition, I'm getting 'Specified file failed upload test." error on the image upload. I cannot click the 'Show' link' though the image file name is shown. The Gallery link amount number increases and clicking it again shows the file name. Clicking 'Media Library' again shows the file name.

    Same exact problem here, using IE7. Very depressing, since I just got everyone to start using the blog.

    cjane - this is my situation exactly:

    Whenever I tried uploading an image, I keep getting this message:

    HTTP error.
    An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later.

    Anyone else experience this?

    I'm running on Firefox.

    Did you find a solution?

    I am still getting the 'Specified file failed upload test'-message and the media-upload.php-error (Object expected).

    Editing the .htaccess-file doesn't work. I can confirm this for IE 7 and Firefox 2 (in Windows Vista AND Windows XP).

    If I can't solve this soon, I'll downgrade to 2.3 again. I need to be able to insert images! I don't understand why this wasn't fixed in 2.5 RC1/RC2. Many users on this forum are having problems...

    There is a fix for the javascript error in IE7 when clicking Add Media.

    Your need to change two files!

    Nothink worked here. I can upload images. But, when I press "insert", nothing happens. Just a white window...

    I'm still waiting for an answer. It's kind frustrating...

    Nice catch! Fixed the problem with admin panel "add image" and "add media" lickety-split!!

    Again, the fix url is: http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/6443
