I am unable to find any solution that will work for my issue so I need to post the question.

I recently upgraded to and now the Browse button does nothing when clicked when trying to upload product images.

I also tried the Maven HTML5 uploader and it throws a Disallowed file type error (file type is a jpg).

Just not sure what do do next. Please help

Please check this post: Security Patch SUPEE-9767 - Possible issues?

For image upload errors read this:

Image Upload callback

The image gallery controller has been updated to add a validation callback.

What to do

If you're using a custom module that does image upload with code that looks like this:

    $uploader = new Mage_Core_Model_File_Uploader('image');
        Mage::helper('catalog/image'), 'validateUploadFile');

I strongly suggest you update that code by adding the following piece after it:

  • Hi sv3n. Before trying the Maven module I was attempting the basic out of the box product upload process. When it didn't work I tried the Maven module. However, I have since uninstalled it hoping to get the basic Magento uploader to work.

  • @CamdenRoe could you solve it? If the Maven module has its own fileuploader search for it in code and add the lines posted above.

  • $uploader = new Maven_Html5uploader_Model_Media_Uploader(); $uploader->setAllowedExtensions(array('jpg','jpeg','gif','png')); $uploader->setAllowRenameFiles(true); $uploader->setAllowCreateFolders(true); $uploader->setFilesDispersion(true);$uploader->addValidateCallback( Mage_Core_Model_File_Validator_Image::NAME, Mage::getModel('core/file_validator_image'), 'validate' ); $result = $uploader->save( Mage::getSingleton('catalog/product_media_config')->getBaseTmpMediaPath()); this my code aftter adding your answer but still not working
