Upload File works in Chrome but not in Firefox

Hello,
I’ve using this code to upload files (i need it to upload files from within project directory).
Chrome works fine, but it throws error whenever i use Firefox. Any ideas?

 'Upload file attachment'
def fileDir = RunConfiguration.getProjectDir()+"/Sample File/Book1.xlsx"
fileDir.replace("/", "\\")
WebUI.uploadFile(findTestObject('Page_Pricing (GWP) Setup - MAA/button_Add Attachment'), fileDir)

Error log:

Its failing because it cant find the file - Make sure that the location is correct, it has access to the location of the file and that the file is there.

To me the location doesnt look correct- ‘/’ should be \ in a path

That’s the problem. Using chrome it works fine. Only firefox that returns the error

*i tried your suggestion, but no luck

I doubt it’s the slashes, Harry. I have a sloppy mixture of them and they work without issue.

Plus, FYI:

But just in case I’m wrong for @DimasAryo.Nugroho environment:

This is wrong:

 'Upload file attachment'
def fileDir = RunConfiguration.getProjectDir()+"/Sample File/Book1.xlsx"
fileDir.replace("/", "\\")

you want

Interesting - learn something new everyday

it’s not working either.
I found workaround for this using System.getProperty
with this, works properly using Chrome and Firefox

I’m also having this problem with Firefox… man, it was confusing to figure out so I’m glad I found this forum post.
I filed an issue here: https://github.com/katalon-studio/katalon-studio-uploadfile-plugin/issues/1

I will answer it by myself. I use the solution of Kazurayam :+1: :

Hello guys got the sale problem with Firefox. What’s the solution in the end ?

@luc.namur

What kind of error do you see with Firefox? Is it something like this?

Caused by: org.openqa.selenium.InvalidArgumentException: 
    Cannot click <input type=file> elements

If so, the following post might be informative.

Nop, I was talking about the previous error of can’t find the folder of the screenshot. But with your solution of using Path, it works great !
