I am having a problem across multiple PCs where I cannot upload images on Stack Overflow any more. I few weeks ago I went to upload an image, but it was to big. Now when I ever go to upload a new one the old image is still uploading, and I cannot cancel it.

This is affecting me across all the stack sites. How can I clear the old upload? I have tried this on my home PC, work PC and work laptop on Chrome and Internet Explorer. The Image wasn't huge, but it was over the limit. Surely, once I couldn't upload, it should have cleared the upload.

Any advice on what I can do?

This is the screen it gets stuck on:

Cancel does nothing. Even when I drop a link into it clicking Upload does nothing.

  • It's really not clear what you mean. Please take a screenshot, you can upload it to imgur.com and put a link here if you can't upload using SE uploader. Apr 16, 2017 at 14:16
  • Check your PCs and if they allow it because of the possessive

    Disable your Norton extension for Chrome, or whatever fancy extension of some "anti virus" you installed, they mess with code needed for the upload, and it will work again. Apr 16, 2017 at 14:32
