Can't attach files in Outlook Web Access

Has anybody seen this? I've googled and found no like issues. I usually use Outlook XP (under CX Office) to get to my work email/calendar. Here's an old screenshot:

Once in awhile, i don't feel like to have to log into the VPN and then authenticate to my domain, so I just check email using Outlook Web Access, which works for the most part. The one annoying thing, however, is that I can't send attachements. Whenever I do, I get the following screen:

The message says, The Document Contains no Data. I then either have to fire up the VPN or launch OWA through Internet Explorer.

Is there a firefox setting that can change this? Is this an OWA issue, a Firefox issue (I haven't tried this under another OS) or a Linux issue?

I use the Outlook web access occasionally (Debian + Firefox) with no probs sending attachments.

I have come across a similar problem uploading files to servers on the same setup, that would transfer perfectly using Win + Firefox. My own suspicion is that it's our local web cache acting up, but this a of wild hunch at best.

Would be curious to know what's actually causing it though.

Thanks for the reply. I gave Opera a shot - unfortunately it uses a different file open dialog than FF which uses a different file open dialog than Konqueror...

Anwyay, I got it to attach one file. The next one didn't go so well. I suddenly got a 500 error on the attach section then this message:

You tried to access the address, which is currently unavailable. Please make sure that the Web address (URL) is correctly spelled and punctuated, then try reloading the page.

Looks like I blew up our Exchange (5.5) server.
