Similar issues have been raised before but I'm not seeing the right solution for me (afaik).

I do the StaffPage Tutorial and everything builds fine but when I go to the CMS and upload an image the frame refreshes and nothing appears to have happened. If I try to add an image from the file store I get the same as this chap: and in the list of files in the filestore is 'new image' for as many times as I've tried to upload the file.

I initially tried to make my own page, following the StaffPage example, but with different names and no holder. That page type does precisely the same thing.

What's going on? If I'm doing something common, or there's something that the host needs to do, perhaps this should go in the tutorial? This is a bit of a brick wall for me at the moment...

I've changed my Flash version to 9 and I'm using SS v.2.3.1 does the same in IE as FF.

Well, I changed my uploads folder permissions to 777 and it works... but is that really very wise?!
