I have an HTML form used for uploading large files. On submit, I'm displaying an animated gif till the form is submitted (no ajax used). The gif shows up in place, but the animation neither works in IE nor in Chrome - only in FF.

This is how it looks:


$(document).ready(function () {

$("#submit_button").click(function (e) {

$('body').prepend('<div align="center">
<img id="loader" src="loader.gif" height="250"width="300" /></div>');
$("#loader").load(function () {




<form action="/path/to/submit" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="user_file" />
<input type="button" id="submit_button" />


Is there any solution to this?

What happens if you have the .gif file in the page using a straight HTML img tag without the script?
