Steps to reproduce

Use an application that allows upload of documents. Click Browse, find the file and select, click Open and the selected file is not displayed in the select box. I have had this work at times but many times it will not, I tried right click Select, double click anything I could think of and could not select a file for upload. Then SOLVED - the issue is when the file is open, the file just does not get selected and the user has no idea why. Please fix the select to work even if the file is open or at least tell the user that file cannot be selected because it is open.
