Sure, it’s a cliche.  Computer not working?  Restart the sucker.  This time though, it paid off.

I just spent the better part of this afternoon working on a JavaScript issue.  I’m using SWFUploader to handle image uploads for a web application of mine; and it was working flawlessly in Chrome, Opera, and IE8.  Firefox, not so much.  No errors.  It just wasn’t doing anything like it was supposed to.

Finally decided to try disabling Firebug which required a restart of Firefox.  Turns out that did the trick.  Not disabling Firebug, but the restart that followed.  Now with Firebug re-enabled it’s still working like a champ.

I guess the lesson is that sometimes the simplest things to try actually work.
