Summary18347: Unable to check extension of this file type image/svg.

Get this error when trying to upload a SVG on answering a file upload question type. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that the SVG is missing the first <?xml> tag. The SVG is valid according to and can be opened with Inkscape with no problems. I tried uploading other SVG files with no problems and they have this tag.

Steps To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce

Try with two SVGs, one with <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> in the first line and one withoutttttttttttttt.

Expected result

Both files should upload.

Actual result

File without <?xml> doesn't uploads.

OK it's a valid SVG file (SVG 1.1 + URL + HTML + MathML 3.0)

But : don't shown on Firefox or Chromium.

You can set your own «magic_file» with config :
