Posting this in case other people run into it. Restarting computer and will see if issue persists.

Hey @KevinRPan, welcome to our forum :balloon:

I just visited your app and can click on the file_uploader without problem. It would successfully open a pop up so I can select a file.

Are you still encountering the issue? Maybe some security settings in your browser?


Thanks arnaud. The issue seems to be resolved after computer restart.
