    Brand new installation with standard plugins and get the same grey screen right out of the box. Happens when trying to post an image and when trying to preview or install a theme. Other installations at same time and same browser no problem. As there a many posts with same problem that are unresolved I assume that above solutions were merely coincidental. Looking for a real solution by reviving this post.

    Add me as one more victim of the "Flickr Photo Post" version 1.2.3 by Michael Jentsch. Deactivated the plugin, and it immediately started working.

    Are you still having the same problem with media and browser uploader? I tried everything until I decided to deactivate No Flash Uploader and install a new plugins for my media. I installed a simple plugins "Word Press Flash Uploader" and it has been working. Now I'm able to update media again. Su

    I've never been able to upload media through the Safari browser since WP 3. The problem is the same on a huge number of sites. Firefox will let me upload however.

    I had the same problem. I deactivated the plugin "Postsible: Facebook Content Management" and now it works!

    Been pulling my hair out with this one for over an hour.

    I have exactly the same issue with my latest WordPress installation (every other one to date works fine).

    Clicking on Media then Add New offers a button 'Select Files' (which does nothing when clicked on) and the following text:
    ---start text---
    You are using the multi-file uploader. Problems? Try the browser uploader instead.
    Maximum upload file size: 2MB. After a file has been uploaded, you can add titles and descriptions.
    ---end text---
    In the above, a text link is offered on 'browser uploader' but clicking on it does nothing. Except that is to append a hash # symbol to the url (wp-admin/media-new.php becomes wp-admin/media-new.php#) at the top of the screen.

    I've tried everything, uninstalled both plugins (All in One SEO Pack and Custom Permalinks), reverted to default Twenty Eleven theme, created a directory called uploads and ensured that its permissions are writeable.

    This is a website with no content yet! I've set up a home page but added nothing. It's barely a couple of hours old and I downloaded the latest version WordPress 3.4.2 on Monday this week. There is no customisation.

    Why on this website and none of my others? I've tried to get the Media Uploader to work using Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Same thing - it just doesn't work. If anyone can help me I would be very grateful indeed.

    Deactivate your plugins one at a time until you find the culprit. That is what I did.

    Thanks for your reply - however I have deactivated (and removed completely) the only two plugins, All in One SEO Pack and Custom Permalinks, and it had no effect. I am looking into whether or not it is something to do with SW Flash, because the Themes Customisation / Preview screens don't load either.
    I've checked in several different browsers and on three different computers, with a full speed cabled connection to the Internet - what's weird is that the same screens work fine for my other WordPress installations, of which there are several. It is only this latest installation that doesn't work.

    I found the problem - a directory was in the wrong place (wp-includes\js\plupload is the correct path, but I had this folder in a folder called scriptaculous instead by mistake).
