Usually I stick to Safari on Mac, IE (latest whatever version) on Win. I can't recall when it worked with either of these. But yet since I see images pop up in others' posts so yesterday, I gave it a desperate last go using Firefox, and that worked.
Oh wait, here at work it works with IE 8 as well:

My impression is that it's not the browser, but rather the file size: images smaller than 130k seem to work.
I'm disappointed that has remained a bug for so long.

I've uploaded many images here using Safari on my Mac, so I don't think it's a browser issue.
My latest attempts was files smaller than 130kB.
It's a point of huge frustration - but we're still trying to isolate where this bug is coming from. All the things we can see/control point to much higher filesize limits. We'll keep pounding on it...
As a test I'm uploading the same image in 2 different sizes to see if the file size causes a problem:
61 k file:
When I tried uploading the same image as a 233 k file I got this error message:
FWIW, I never have a problem - although my files are rarely large.
(Firefox on Win-XP.)
i used Safari when first attempting to upload the image in the "Symbol for certainty/uncertainty" thread, and it failed. For a next post I really wanted to show my image so I decided to give FF a try. That worked, so I revisited this post and could upload it. The very same image file that failed before w/Safari.
Paint me clueless.
