Uploads freezing

I just wanted to mention that if your uploads freeze, try using a different browser.


I had this problem, trying to upload a file (from a Mac) using Firefox. It was not a large file, just 1.7 gigs.


I tried several times. Each time it started, went for a minute, then stopped completely, and would not continue.


I switched from Firefox to Safari, and the upload completed.
