[Mongrel] [Slightly OT] Uploading files with firefox

Well even if I pull all the javascript code and just do a straight  
form post with no progress I get this behavior in firefox. The upload  
request is taking more than 5 seconds
so firefox is popping up that dialog. IE and safari work fine and for  
the first time ever it's firefox that I'm cursing instead of IE or  
safari. Go figure :-)
