Steps to reproduce

Hello Folks,

We try to upload a file via a simple <input type="file" > tag. When we then navigate a directory structure that is a sharepoint network drive we recieve following error:

In dem Skript auf dieser Seite ist ein Fehler aufgetreten.
Zeile: 42
Fehler: Die Eigenschaft “empty” eines undefinierten oder Nullverweises kann nicht abgerufen werden.
Code: 0
URL: [… cut for privacy reasons]/_vti_bin/owssvr.dll?dialogview=FileOpen&FileDialogFilterValue="."&location=[mylocation]

The error roughly translates to: The property “empty” of undefined or Nullpointer cannot be accessed.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open following site in browser:
  2. Navigate to a sharepoint that is added as a network drive
  3. Access a directory on said network drive
