Uploading .mp3 files using a mobile device results in the error Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons., while uploading the same file using a desktop machine works as intended.

Tested with an administrator account so uploads should be unfiltered.

Debugging it with android chrome shows that for some reason, when you select a MP3 as the file to upload, android uploads it without the file extension. For example tone instead of tone.mp3

This happens with both the browser upload function, and the multi-file uploader.

I'm not sure if it makes a difference, but I tested with Chrome 40.0.2214.89 + "Document" when prompted to select a file.
