Importing GPX files from PC not working

I am trying to import a GPX file from my PC file system. Sometime this works but most of the time not. When I select the file to import, caltop says importing for a "long" time but when I mouse over the "importing" message it reverts back to the request to select a file (i.e., it really did nothing while I waited). When the import works, I get the dialog asking me what I want (waypoints, etc.) to import but when it does not work, I never get the dialog. One thing of note is that my gpx files have multiple tracks in them.

    Having same problem. Tried using Firefox, Chrome, Opera, edge. Basically nothing happens when I select a gpx file to import.

    Sorry, this should be fixed now - it only affected some GPX files, so the attachment was helpful in finding the problem.
