When I upload a file in Chrome, Chrome only remembers the PARENT folder when I continue with a next file. I need to upload dozens of files in the same folder, so this gets very time-consuming.


I click on BROWSE in a form, go to /home/user/Desktop and select a file. I click on another BROWSE button in a form, and the popup opens in /home/user, so I need to go to Desktop manually.

Any idea?

What version of Chrome are you using? What version of Ubuntu do you have? – Nathan Osman Mar 19 '11 at 7:04

Firstly, like George Edison commented, what Chrome are you using. Update Chrome to the latest version in case it was a bug that has been fixed.

Secondly, I tested on various sites and it works fine, remembering the last location I was in for a Browse. I would guess that it's probably the site you're trying to upload to; it's probably coded to go to the parent folder by mistake. Try it out on something like Gmail attachments or another popular site and see if the problem persists.

Now that I am upgraded to version 14, it all works fine indeed. Thanks for the help! – user6019 Oct 26 '11 at 16:56
