    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.

    Did you set it to be the defautl jvm in your system? To do it, open a terminal and give:
    Code:
    sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun
    restart firefox and then check if the advanced uploader now works.

    Hope that helps.
