'Upload File' button is not working on Google Chrome

Hey guys, I'm trying to upload photos to the file page, but the 'Upload File' button is not responding with Google Chrome. Nothing happens when I click on the button. The same thing occurs when I try to upload a photo on the About Us page. I kept trying to upload files last night, and tested again this morning, and still does not work.

Is this an overall Shopify technical issue? Anyone else experiencing this? Looking forward to a response, thanks!

I did try on Safari, and the button works! But would still prefer to work on Google Chrome, since all of my work is saved there.

Still, anyone knows what the issue may be when using Google Chrome?

Hi @vpfitofficial20 

Welcome to the Shopify Community. Thanks for taking the time to reach out about this, and for updating the thread while testing other browsers. 

We did experience a live issue with the Files section of the admin earlier today (around the time of your posting) and this issue has since been resolved. Are you able to please try clearing your cookies and cache on your Chrome browser and try uploading a file again? Thanks for your patience today while our developers worked on a solution. 

So you know, I've just tried uploading a file to the Files section of my test store using Chrome, and it was successful. Make sure your browser is also up to date if you're still experiencing issues. 

Let me know how this goes!

I'm having the same issue. My chrome is up to date but I need to keep restarting it in order for the upload button to work. Is anyone else still having this issue? I prefer to use Chrome, is a fix in the works?

Yep same here. Upload file buttons are not responsive on Chrome.


Works just fine on Safari but I can only access our apps on Chrome so having to switch in and out of both which isn't ideal!
