Hello That Person,

i just created an account on mediafire just to test the upload that you were having problems with. here's the 40 megabyte photo of mars from the phoenix lander i just uploaded. it looks like my backyard here in Arizona.

I used the regular upload tool but i should point out that i have installed sun's java 6. that may be why it worked for me and not for you. alternatively you may want to try their basic uploader tool instead.

I have just installed Sun Java 6 Runtime and Sun Java 6 broswer plugin and still get the freeze, guess i have to stick to the basic uploader

Did you set it to be the defautl jvm in your system? To do it, open a terminal and give:

sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun
restart firefox and then check if the advanced uploader now works.

Hope that helps.
