Invalid Error Message When Attaching a File That Has Validation Problems


      NOTE: This bug report is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding bug report.

      When trying to upload large files that exceeds the max attachments size (default 10M) there's a weird browser behavior that only happens in a certain way. Here's the steps to reproduce:
      1. Create a new page in a space.
      2. Save the post.
      3. Edit the post again.
      4. From the Rich Text editor toolbar, select Insert -> Attach
      5. Select a file from your local disk that exceeds the default size (above 10 megabytes)

      After the file upload progress bar is done, you can see a file download prompt from the browser for "attachfile.action". The behavior is the same for IE and Firefox. See attached screenshots.
