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.

Same issue. MacOS Monterey 12.6.5. File uploader stops giving pop-up window randomly. A browser (Edge) restart fixed it.
