Still happens in IE10RP on Windows 7.

What's the point of pointing out bugs if they aren't going to be fixed, especially if its a regression?

Guess you can disregard that last comment as it took me more than 7 minutes to post it (hadn't yet seen the latest reply from Microsoft).

Video of the issue in IE9 Beta: http://stfcc.org/misc/vids/?name=IE9%20browse%20bug

After double clicking the file name box and closing the open file dialog, notice that clicking on the Browse button the first time does nothing. Clicking on it the second time brings up the open file dialog.

Same happens in the IE9PP7.

Let's use one of the URLs you supplied.

http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/forms/_INPUT_TYPE_FILE.html

Navigate to the above page, double click in the file name box (and not the browse button), cancel the open file dialog, then click Browse. Depending on how fast you click the Browse button, the first time you click Browse will always do nothing.

I can reproduce this on multiple installations.

I also find it funny how I more often than not have to repeat the reproduction steps (as they've been written in the bug report) before 'Microsoft' is able to reproduce the issue. But I digress.
