As it was asked previously:

I have the same problem with the same version of IE6 but with FCK 2.5

When I try to upload an image with FF2 it always works but with IE6 most of the time it stuck.

Click on the "image" icon in the toolbar.
Click on the button "Browse Server"
Click on "Browse" and select an image on your disk.
Click on "Upload"

  • The text "(Upload in progress, please wait...)" is displayed
  • The button "upload" is greyed out and stays grey.

But no file uploaded, no error message (neither on screen nor in Apache logs).

But sometime (10%) this scenario works with IE6 (Always with FF2)

My two cents it’s a JavaScript problem (lost of messages ...)

Last point: My site uses SSL (https). When I click on "Browse Server" IE6 says "the page contains both secure and nonsecure items". No message when I use FF2.

-- Hope that help

I found a solution for both problems:

1) I added to the configuration of Apache this line

SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown

More info here about POST with IE over SSL here:

And now IE6 never stuck while uploading file.

2) IE thinks an empty frame is in unsecured zone.
So, at the end of the file editor/filemanager/browser/default/browser.html, I replaced src="javascript:void(0)" by src="frmempty.html" and I created an empty html page named frmempty.html in the same directory as browser.html

I dont like the " added to the configuration of Apache" solution it is simple POST and should work without web-server modifications

comment:10 Changed 17 years ago by goldax the way i have same problem using HTTP (without ssl )

comment:11 Changed 17 years ago by goldax

hmm..checked again, and it do working without SSL when using direct uploading, but gives XML error when trying to use server browser (return empty XML) Firefox works great

Resolution: wontfix
Status: confirmedclosed

FCKeditor was retired and is no longer supported. All active development was moved to its successor, CKEditor 3.x, that is a fully mature and far superior product. We recommend you upgrade as soon as possible since this issue is no longer a problem in current code base.
