    When testing a Jotform that allows file upload on a desktop browser it works just fine. However the same page on my smartphone browser gives the error "FILENAME.filetype is empty, please select files again without it".

    The browse button works fine for finding the file but gives this message whenever the file is selected.

    The possible solution is to use Opera browser for Android users, and iCab browser for iOS users.
