I've been using Firefox on Win2K... no problems there. But your file uploading problems do sound similar to mine.

Not that I've found... It may be a matter of contacting Amazon and asking them to remove the file... or maybe we can convince them to add a "delete" button.

PRC is a legitimate Mobi format, and Amazon's server will accept them (both of my submissions were PRC files). Any failure messages you're getting aren't related to that.

Amazon's forum seems to suggest that the problem might be in cache or cookies building up after multiple edits, but I had the same problem after clearing my cache and cookies and restarting the browser. I think the problem is a glitch in their server... maybe caused by Borders Gremlins, I don't know.
