Good Day,


                I’m having an issue with IE8, when I go to load a file the 
program is not filling the $_FILES['user_file']['type']  .

              When I display  “echo  "Start".$_FILES['pix']['type']."End";”  in 
IE8 I get “StartEnd” with nothing in between.  I expected “image/pjpeg".
                    On FireFox I get “image/jpeg".
                    Any suggestions?


What do the other $_FILES fields say? Are they populated correctly?

I wouldn't rely on anything sent from the browser. IE is known to send the mime 
type that matches the extension, not the contents of the file, and for .jpg 
images it sends a different mime to every other browser anyway, so it's pretty 



With IE8,

      Using $_FILES the array results for  ‘name’ has the name of the file but 
‘type’, ‘tmp_name’ and ‘size’ are blanks.

     I tried enabling the “file path location” in IE8 option but the results 
are the same for $_FILES. 


   Firefox works displays all the values in the $_FILES array.

There must be a better way. Suggestions?
