Problem uploading files in web browser
« on: March 03, 2018, 11:46:51 AM »
Finally, after more than 6 months :'( , I discover that my problems uploading files from browser to wordpress site and also on another php site are caused by avast. If I disable avast, uploading work ok, but with avast active the uploading start, upload some kb and then stop. After some minutes of timeout  wordpress give me a http error. I usually use palemoon as my default browser. But I have same errors also with firefox. I have avast free (always updated) on win7x64.
Same help on this or someone that have same problems?

Thank you

Unfortunately, there's no additional support (Email/Phone) for Avast Free.
But you can submit a bug report in "About Avast".

This may be the same issue I discovered with "large" projects in App Inventor that did not receive any attention from Avast. I have turned the Avast Web Shield off until someone stumbles on the bug and fixes it.

Larger projects fail to upload with Avast Web Shield active.

Yes, if I disable web shield all works ok. So I will hold it off...
