I am trying to upload a 4.4GB file to my account. I have a 25GB account and am currently using only 350MB. When I click on the file I want to upload it says it's uploading. When I open up the terminal and type in bmon it shows nothing happening. Bmon is working because I tested it by uploading and downloading from other sites and it registers transmission rates. I first tried uploading this file yesterday and came back hours later and it was still saying 'uploading'. That's when I opened up bmon and saw that nothing was happening. I tried checking publish file and then unchecking it. Didn't matter. I am using Firefox on Linux Mint 14. Thank you.

Some information elsewhere suggests that Firefox might have a 2Gb limit for POST. It might mean that it's causing a javascript error which is going unnoticed. Could you try with Chrome and let us know if that works for you?

Chrome works! The file is uploading. Thank you so much. – Richard Jan 7 '13 at 16:03
