Steps to reproduce

[1] Navigate to http://stokes.byu.edu/iso/isodistortparent.html
[2] In the “Method 4” section of the page, browse select to any local ascii-text file and then click the adjacent “OK” button.

A new tab or window should then open to display an analysis of the contents of the file. This has been working fine for years in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera, but does not appear to work in Microsoft Edge. When using Edge, the $_POST and $_FILES arrays turn up empty.

The problem appears to be the ‘target="_blank"’ attribute in the form that handles the upload. When this attribute is removed, a file is uploaded, but the result appears in the originating tab/window. The ‘target="_blank"’ attribute only creates a problem for the form that uploads a file; it works fine for the other forms on the same page.

    • Thanks for the feedback on Edge. This is what I get back whenever I give it a text file:

      Space Group: 221 Pm-3m Oh-1, Lattice parameters: a=4.2
      Default space-group preferences: monoclinic axes a(b)c, monoclinic cell choice 1, orthorhombic axes abc, origin choice 2, hexagonal axes, SSG standard setting
      Sr 1b (1/2,1/2,1/2), Ti 1a (0,0,0), O 3d (1/2,0,0)
      Include strain, displacive distortions
      Reading CIF file… This program has bombed:
      Error: no data found in CIF file. read_cif 39 exit

      This happens in both Chrome and Edge. Would it be possible for you to upload the same file you are providing? 

      All the best,
