    Is the attachment feature not working? I'm getting an error message when I try to attach a PDF or PNG file. I'm using 64-bit Firefox v. 53.0.3 under Windows 7.

    You can't do it in the edit modal. Is that what you were trying to do? Did it say "uploads not available"? Or did it give some type of error?

    It's possible that the size is too large. I've tried to upload photos from my iPhone before and they never processed due to a sizing error. Or so I assumed.

    Everything looks like it's working until I click the "Open" button in the window where I select the file to be uploaded. After a progress bar briefly appears, a window pops up that says:

    The following error occurred

    There was a problem uploading your file.

    05275L22.PDF
    The last line is the name of the file I was trying to upload. I get the same result whether I am editing an existing post or writing a new one.

    I am able to open the files OK on my computer.

    That is a PDF file. Not a png.

    Ack! There was a typo in my opening post. I meant to say that it happens when I try to upload either a PDF or a PNG file. Same results with either file type.

    By the way, this is the PDF I was trying to upload:

    http://155.178.201.160/d-tpp/1705/05275L22.PDF

    I saved it to my local disk and tried to upload it from there, because it's an expired approach plate and I expect the link to break at some point. When it failed to upload, I created a PNG file from a screen capture, and that won't upload either.
