I’m having an issue with IE8, when I go to load a file the

On FireFox I get “image/jpeg".
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
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?
