Magento 1.x Browse Image and Upload Files Button Missing

If you are a Google Chrome user and noticed the Browse Files and Upload Files buttons are missing when attempting to upload images to your products then we may have a solution for you!

In recent changes (around years 2016-2018) to Google Chrome, Flash-based content has to be manually authorized in the Content settings of Google Chrome.

Newer Magento 1.x versions do not have this issue as the Flash uploader was replaced with an updated system, but if you are still on an older Magento 1.x version this might be helpful to you.

Consider hiring website maintenance services for any professional help you may need with your ecommerce website.

  • In Google Chrome, visit this URL: chrome://settings/content/flash
  • That should take you to the settings area for Flash content.
  • Click on “ADD” next to the ALLOW section.
  • There will be a popup box, enter “[*.]a-different-domain.com” without the quotes and with your proper domain name.
