This is exactly the same problem:

That's useful information when there is a problem with validating via 
file upload, but the problem is not caused by your computer since it 
only happens when validated from the server.  By the way, have you 
considered switching to a more standards compliant and secure browser?

Well, that's just completely irrelevant to this problem since you don't 
have a problem uploading your files.  However, that would also be 
irrelevant for this list.  Anyway, thankyou for at least trying to 
provide us with all the information we need, which is better than some.
