Flash Upload Fails

Description

Flash upload consistently fails when using https. The only thing that's really unique about my setup is that I 403 anything not https (it's not a redirect, it's just a 403) and that it's not a valid cert.

I see it making an attempt to POST, but it fails with an "IO error.". My suspicion is that it doesn't like the invalid cert.

A decent workaround would be an option to default to the Browser Uploader so that it's not necessary to toggle every single time.

It's an annoyance more than anything else.

I think we've fixed all we can here. My understanding is that the flash uploader and https sometimes just don't get along. In 2.8 we'll be looking at non-flash alternatives like Gears.
