I've checked with the latest browser versions that run on XP.
The "Select Files" button is no longer showing for Pale Moon and Firefox.
It's there for Advanced Chrome and Slimjet, although the formatting/word wrapping isn't as nice.
I'm not sure if changing forum settings effects the My Files page. I haven't tried changing them.

Have you tried a system restore prior to the button going missing to see it was a browser update that did that?I think,therefore i am a hamster.
I don't have system restore enabled, and not much is updated for XP these days. There's been no updates or XP friendly browser releases in quite a while, as far as I know.
I did however, update an add-on or two recently, so I restarted Firefox with add-ons disabled, but the button's still missing.

How about uninstalling and reinstalling?I think,therefore i am a hamster.
Is that the forum moderator equivalent of "have you tried turning it off and turning it on again"?
It's the same for two browsers, which is a mighty co-incidence, although admittedly computers are designed to torture users with co-incidence and lead them down a fault finding rabbit hole. Or is that just the ones I've owned?
If I can find the installation file, or the site where Firefox archives offline installation files so I can re-install it, I'll try turning it off and tuning it on again tonight if I can. Or early tomorrow.
Clear browser cache completly?
Is that the forum equivalent of turning it off, letting it cool down, then tuning it back on?
In this case though, I did clear the Firefox, Advanced Chrome and SlimJet caches first, but I was in the middle of doing something with Pale Moon.
Hmm. Doesn't they support the HTML form file inputs?
I have changed to
The Select files was FLASH and is no longer supported by most browsers.
Click in the empty space (or black rectangle) below "Upload files". This acivate a Flash Allow request. If you set allow, the select files button reappears.
How long ago was a long time ago? It's only fairly recently it stopped working. Probably no more than a month.
I can't see any mention of flash in the list of Firefox plugins, but it is included with Advanced Chrome. When I disable it, there's no Select Files button on the My Files page, but there's no Browse button or link either.
Is there somewhere else on the site I can check for HTML form file input support? The other places for uploading files, such as adding attachments to PMs, are working normally.
