Uploading files to website not working with Safari in Windows 7

Safari version: 5.1.7
OS: Windows 7
I am a website owner, and I have a feature on my site where users can upload large (up to 50MB) music files to my server. The feature works in Firefox on OSX & Windows platforms and it also works in Safari on OSX. The uploading feature is not working with Safari for Windows. Do you have any idea why and how to fix this? It can't be an issue with my server as it works in other browsers fine and works fine in Safari for OS X.
If you have any information on how to solve this or things for me to try to rectify this for use with Windows operating system it would be much appreciated.

I have solved this issue myself with some help from my a user on Microsoft Forums. The issue stems from the mime type of each Browser Chrome, IE, & Safari for Windows defaults as audio/wav. When the mime type is changed to audio/x-wav everything works. Firefox defaults to audio/x-wav and when changed to audio/wav it DOES NOT work.
Once I input some code in my .php upload page to change the mimetype if audio/wav is detected everything works GREAT!!!
So Here is what you need to do: Find your upload page and input this code:
echo "<p>MIME Type: ".$_FILES["file"]["type"]."</p>";   
right before your "If/then" statement of file type. For me it was near line 30 in my upload.php page, but I'm sure this is different for everyone.
This will detect and DISPLAY the default mime type of your browser on the error page when your upload doesn't work. Once you know what mime type works for your file type then you can change your "if/then" statement for mime type upload to change your mime type to the correct one.
I don't want to give the code here, because I'm sure it's specific to your file types and your site construction, but this should lead you on the right track.
***This is the solution if you ARE NOT ABLE to upload any certain file in a certain Browser. It has to do with mime type construction***
I hope this helps others like it helped me!!!!!

  • Adobe Flash Player does not work with Safari. What can I do?

    I have a MacBook Pro, Retina, 15 inch, late 2013,  2 GHz Intel Core i7, using OS X 10.9.4. I have installed Adobe Flash Player. In my System Preference, in the advanced settings, it is set to install updates also tells me that I have the NPAPI Plug-in (version installed but not the PPAPI Plug-in. Is this the reason why it does not work with Safari (keeps telling me to download the app, which I did but still does not work)? Is there any way I could fix the problem? Please, help.

    If you can't install or update Flash, follow these instructions.
    If you have installed the latest version of Flash, please take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried. After each step, relaunch Safari and test. For a "missing plug-in" error, start with Step 8. Back up all data before making any changes.
    Step 1
    You might have to log out or restart the computer before a Flash update takes effect.
    Step 2
    From the Safari menu bar, select
              Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Privacy ▹ Remove All Website Data...
    and confirm. Close the window. Then select
               ▹ System Preferences… ▹ Flash Player ▹ Advanced
    and click Delete All. Close the preference pane.
    Step 3
    If you're only having trouble with YouTube videos, log in to YouTube and load this page. You may see a link with the text "Leave the HTML5 Trial." If so, click that link.
    Step 4
    a. If you get a warning of a "blocked" or "outdated" plug-in, then select the Security tab in the Safari preferences window. In the list of plugins on the left, there should be one—and only one—entry for "Adobe Flash Player," showing the same version number that you installed. Select that entry. On the right there will be a list of websites for which you have specifically allowed Flash, if any. It's normal for the list to be empty. Below that is a menu labeled
              When visiting other websites
    From that menu, select either Allow or Ask.
    b. If you still get the alerts, then go back to the Flash Player preference pane and select the Advanced tab. Click Check Now. Quit and relaunch the browser.
    c. If the alerts still persist, triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted text and select
              Services ▹ Open
    from the contextual menu.* A folder should open. Inside it, there should be a file named "XProtect.meta.plist". If that file is missing and you know why it's missing, restore it from a backup or copy it from another Mac running the same version of OS X. Otherwise, reinstall OS X.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. In the Finder, select
              Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar and paste into the box that opens by pressing command-V. You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.
    Step 5
    In the Safari preferences window, select the Advanced tab and uncheck the box marked
              Stop plug-ins to save power
    Step 6
    Open this folder as in Step 4:
    /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    Delete the following item, or anything with a similar name, if present:
              Flash Player (failing).plugin 
    You may be prompted for your login password.
    Step 7
    Re-download and reinstall Flash. Download it from the domain "get.adobe.com". Don't click a link from any other website, including this one, because you can't trust links. They may be an attempt to trick you into installing malware masquerading as Flash. Type the address into the browser window. Never download a Flash update from anywhere else.
    Step 8
    If you get a "missing plug-in" error, select
              Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Security
    from the Safari menu bar and check the box marked  
              Allow (or Enable) plug-ins
    Then click the button marked
              Manage Website Settings...
    if present and make sure that the website is not blocked for Flash.
    Step 9
              Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
    from the Safari menu bar. If any extensions are installed, disable them.

  • Why hyperlink color change not working with Safari?

    With several sites I visit when I click on their text link lists I see a colored symbol change to let remind me I visited that site. Unfortunately this only works when I use Firefox or IE, not Safari. Is there a reason this does not work with Safari? Is there anything I can do? thanks.
    Safari 3.2.1

    Hi ..
    YouTube content requires Flash.
    Open System Preferences > Flash Player then select the Advanced tab.
    Click Delete All under Browsing Data and Settings
    Not empty the Safari cache.
    From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Advanced tab.
    Select:  Show Develop menu in menu bar
    Now click Develop from the menu bar. From the drop down menu click Empty Caches.
    Now try a video. If you still have problems, try troubleshooting Safari extensions.
    From the Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Extensions tab. Turn that OFF, quit and relaunch Safari to test.
    If that helped, turn one extension on then quit and relaunch Safari to test until you find the incompatible extension then click uninstall.

  • Two-finger pinch zoom not working with safari

    Suddenly, the two-finger pinch to zoom is not working with Safari. MBP 13", SL 10.6.8 andf Safari 5.1. The View Menu Zoom control works fine, and the Pinch gesture works once thereafter, but then not. I have reloaded the Safari .plist. Gesture works with the Desktop icons and iPhoto. Any suggestions?

    Ditto with the Newsstand-blocks-the-Home-Screen bug.
    I was eager to see the revised New York Times layout and disappointed when Newsstand wouldn't pinch closed.
    The irony is, we can finally "hide" the Newsstand in a folder but now it takes over our Home Screens. I'm hoping this will be fixed in the first update.

  • Does the Citrix ICA client work with Safari for Windows XP?

    I really like safari for XP so far. However, I use the Citrix ICA client software to remotely access programs from a server at work. I tried following instructions on the Citrix knowledge base site for installing the client for Firefox, etc. since they did not have any info on Safari for windows. Please help, or I will be stuck using Explorer. Thanks.

    The Citrix ICA client doesn't work with Safari on a Mac. Given the number of bugs and other problems with the Safari 3 Beta for Windows, I'd guess that the chances of Citrix working with this release are slim to none. However, the Citrix ICA client works well with Firefox 2.0, in case you're interested in trying it.

  • Javascript time counters not working with Safari 5.1.4

    New Safari 5.1.4 made my website javascript time counters frozen and not working. I am using jQuery library on my site.
    You can see the preview of the problemhere: http://headiil.ee/
    What is the problem with this new Safari update and how can it be solved?

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a test, not a solution. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    Step 1
    The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is localized to your user account.
    Enable guest logins and log in as Guest. For instructions, launch the System Preferences application, select Help from the menu bar, and enter “Set up a guest account” (without the quotes) in the search box.
    While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your personal files or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin.
    Test while logged in as Guest. Same problem(s)?
    After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it.
    Note: If you’ve activated FileVault in Mac OS X 10.7 or later, then you can’t enable the Guest account. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing.
    Step 2
    The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. The instructions provided by Apple are as follows:
    Be sure your Mac is shut down.
    Press the power button.
    Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone, but not before the tone.
    Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including wireless networking on certain Macs.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem(s)?
    After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode.) Post the results of steps 1 and 2.

  • Suddenly New York Times website not working in Safari

    I often leave the NYT website up on a tab in Safari, where it auto-refreshes every five minutes or so.  Worked fine earlier today.  Now I get "Page Not Found" posted by NYT with some suggestions and a short list of content.  This is on my iMac, see identical behavior on my MacBook Pro with Safari.  But: the site works fine in Firefox, on both machines.  I have the NYT extension in Safari on the iMac but not on the MBP.  No other extensions.
    Did run into some kind of malware yesterday when looking up song lyrics in Safari, somehow got a popup from url "security-lmeniagy-chk.in/js?t=<bunch of stuff>" that claimed to be "from the FBI" and tried to extort money; had to Force Quit Safari and hold Shift on the re-launch so as not to reopen that page, but after that Safari seemed fine.  Or maybe there's some lingering problem?  (But this wouldn't explain the behavior on the MBP.)  Kinda puzzling.  Thanks for any tips.  (Safari v6.0.5, OSX 10.8.5)

    Thanks for the tip!  I checked for malicious adware per Safe Mac instructions, found nothing suspicious. (Doubted DNS or network or other causes because is Safari-specific problem.) Meanwhile, the problem has gone away!  I suspect the NYT folks found and fixed something, because all I did was refresh their page in Safari (on iMac and MBP) and voila!, it displayed correctly. 
    Might it be useful for Apple to know more about this problem, since it appeared to expose a vulnerability in Safari that was not present in Firefox?  I'd suggest contacting NYT to see if they can enlighten.
    Thanks again for help.

    Welcome to Discussions, Michael Pane
    Depending on system configuration and installed third-party items, various users have reported different methods of restoring Flash video website functionality:
    (1) For those who have installed Google plugins, user OysterOyster reports that uninstalling them restores proper iSight function with Flash and Mac OS X 10.6.5.
    If Google is your problem, the GoogleVoiceAndVideoUninstaller.app should be in your hard drive's Library/Application Support/Google/ folder. (not your *Home > Library* folder)
    Other users confirm that using the Google uninstaller works, including your post here:
    Some other users, including those who do not use the Google plugins, have found other remedies.
    (2) User joew13 reports that installing the 64-bit Flash plug-in beta for Mac OS X (DMG, 8.7 MB)
    fixed Flash sites for him.
    This link allows download of the 64-bit plugin beta from an official Adobe page:
    or, to download the beta directly, click this link--> http://tinyurl.com/2frejs4
    Several other users have confirmed success after the beta update.
    (3) User imagerle downgraded Flash to version 10,0,45,2 to restore Flash video.
    If this older version is not available on a backup or an old install disk, it can be downloaded from Adobe's Archived Flash Players page:

  • 5k retina display - scroll not working with Safari (both magic mouse and trackpad)

    suddenly my trackpad and magic mouse stopped working with scrolling (most annoying one) and other gestures.
    I recently bought the iMAC 5K retina display and was not expecting this by any means...
    I have a ton of tabs open on safari and simply "refuse" to try the old windows way of rebooting the machine...
    I have to use the arrow keys to scroll down... this is insane
    could you please advise? am I missing something?
    many thanks

    Just found out the reason I couldn't get the two to play nicely. I had connected my keyboard and trackpad using a "Magic Wand" which looked great. Unfortunately the magic wand had a connecting piece to fill in the gap between the two pieces and this was preventing the little pads underneath the trackpad clicking. So I can only guess that because the trackpad couldn't click it thought it was stuck and therefore also locked up the mouse. I've remove the connector and both pieces work perfectly together!

  • Adobe Flash Player Will Not Work with Safari Mac OS 10.9.2

    I have tried numerous times to install Adobe Flash Player for Mac OS 10.9 and get Plug-in error when I try to run it.  Before the suggested update, Flash Player ran fine.  I would not have tried the update except the files on the web site that I am usinf had a symnbol statiing that the later version of Flash Player was required for it to run. 
    I did what Adobe suggested and removed the plug-in and then reinstalled it. Still does not work.  When is Adobe going to fix it?   I think it was not well researched before the release, and it definately has compatibility issues with Mac OS 10.9 Mavericks

    Hi Mike M,
    Thanks for the quick response.  It worked OK after I did this, and I alerted other users in my MUG just in case they have a similar aged Macs.  I hope that the fix for this will be automatic in the next update.
