Whenever I press enter on the "browse" button on any website to upload files and or pictures or anything else, it just brings up forms mode, like you are in an edit field. It will not bring up the dialog box that asks you to choose a file to upload. I thought that I'd let you know, so you could make the change in future developments.
I am using IE9, and this problem occurs no matter the website I am on.

Damn. This issue is in 2011.2 as well.
Technical: I suspect this regression was caused by 28e79cb. It seems the NVDAObject is being identified as a read only editable text field and this change switches to focus mode for those. The NVDAObject should have a role of button instead (as the node does in the buffer).
Changed title from "Found New Bug in the Friday August 12 Snapshot Release" to "Pressing enter on button for file upload in IE9 switches to focus mode instead of activating button"
Milestone changed from None to 2011.3

the weird thing was that I seemed to do okay in some respects in 2010.2. I personally did not notice the problem, until I started messing around with the snapshots. I started with them this week.
Now, something that i did notice is that even when I was using 2010.2 and IE8, I had a problem when a flash based uploading script was used (An example of this can be found when using the photo uploader on Facebook's main website.), it just says a string of some numbers and brings you back to the page. It will not bring up the dialog box. I have not yet tried it out with the snapshots. I did not, however, have this issue in Firefox with the flash based uploading scripts.
