Description Gavin Sherlock 2008-06-16 14:32:53 PDT
When attaching a file for upload in a form (e.g. try any bugzilla bug report) the name of the selected file is contracted if it is over a certain length, with characters in the middle being replaced with periods.  This happens even when there is more than enough space to display the full name.  Frequently, this will make the file name ambiguous, and can be confusing when looking to see if you filled in a form correctly, where multiple files are attached (such as when submitting a scientific manuscript to a journal).  If there is enough space to display the full name, it would be great if the full name could be displayed.

Tested with Safari 3.1.1 and r34522
