Not Able To Attach Images To Cases

For the past two days I am not able to add my screenshots to cases through the "attach" button.  After trying to attach the screenshot it says "failed to load".  I tried adding them as a comment but that also didn't work.  I used google chrome and firefox making sure they were both updated and having cleared all my cache and cookies.  Can anyone assist?

@Richard Persaud Welcome to community.

Can you provide the steps you are taking to attach the image?  Are you saving the screenshot first or are you just trying to paste it in?  Can you also share a screenshot of the error?

I create a screenshot and save it on my computer then I click on attach and then it says "We couldn't save your attachment".  It was working fine on Monday.  This was the first time experiencing this.

@Richard Persaud - Have you tried clearing your browser's cache?

Yes I have, and It's set to clear every time I close the browser.  Its really strange.  I tried different browsers also.

@Richard Persaud how large is the file you are uploading?  Are you the admin of the Jira instance?

It varies from 90kb - about 200kb.  I am not the admin.

Is it happening to anyone else?  

Its just me, and when others post attachments, it shows up as the above screenshot.

@Richard Persaud is it the same on all projects?  Are you not able to attach items on other projects as well?

I am wondering if on that project you do not have the permission to create attachments.  You should have the project admin check.

@Brant Schroeder Its on all projects, including my own
I was thinking it may be an issue with Jira since its worked for me for a couple years and this only started happening his week.

@Richard Persaud I am not able to recreate the issue.  Since you are the only one having the issue I was thinking it might be a permission change but since it is happening across all projects I will escalate it to Atlassian as they will be able to view your account.   Have you submitted a support ticket with them?

Also is the issue the same on all computers for you?  Just wondering still if there is something installed on your computer that could be causing the issue.  Just to be sure can you have your Jira admin use the permission helper to check and see if you can add attachments?  Instructions for accessing the helper:
