Date: Oct 25 2011

We have developed an in house fix for users running Zimbra 6 with Firefox 7 using the drag and drop extension. If you are uploading files and getting errors or undefended file name and “Critical – Error uploading file” messages then this will take care of your issues.

Resloves the following issues

  • “Critical – Error uploading file” dialog appears and the “Attaching files” line sort of sits there and spins
  • java.io.FileNotFoundException: zimlet description not found: com_zimbra_dnd.xml
  • undefined file description after upload
