Help! _FFClick doesn't work on buttons anymore? (FF.au3)

NOTE: MY STACK OVERFLOW QUESTION HERE ALSO: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/36162810/autoit-firefox-automation-ffclick-doesnt-work-on-buttons-anymore-ff-au3 

Help! I had AutoIt code that would do the following:

 1. load a page in FireFox, then 
 2. click on the 'browse' button, then 
 3. waits for the File Upload window to appear

This code worked great and I used it many times! Now, about a month later, it stopped working. I checked the HTML page and it did NOT change, and the id is the same. 

Here are some resources:

Here is the HTML that I am trying to access. I am trying to click on #filename

    <fieldset>
        <legend>Import step one: upload Word Document</legend>
        <h2>Import Word Document: Upload</h2>
        <div class="field-group">
             <div class="checkbox/radio">
                  <label for="filename">Upload:</label>
                  <input id="filename" name="filename" size="50" "="" type="file">
             </div>
         </div>
         <input class="text hidden" name="pageId" value="158367782">
          <div class="buttons-container">
               <div class="buttons">
                    <span class="word-file-loading hidden" id="loading">Loading</span>
                    <input disabled="disabled" id="next" name="submit" value="Next" class="button" type="submit">
               </div>
          </div>
    </fieldset>

Here's my simplified AutoIt code that should press the #filename button:

    ; 1) OPEN THE PAGE (WORKS) (I changed the URL)
        _FFOpenURL("http://..../")

    ; 2) WAIT FOR PAGE TO LOAD (WORKS)
        _FFLoadWait()

    ; 3) SLEEP FOR 5 SECONDS (WORKS)
        Sleep(5000)

    ; 4) CLICK THE BROWSE BUTTON (FAILS)
    ;    (SAYS IT IS A SUCCESS BUT THE BUTTON NEVER GETS PRESSED!!)
        _FFClick("filename", "id")

    ; 5) WAIT FOR "FILE UPLOAD" WINDOW TO APPEAR (FAILS)
    ;    (FAILS BECAUSE BUTTON NEVER GOT PRESSED ABOVE)
        Local $result = WinWaitActive("File Upload","",10) 

Here is my full autoit code that should press the #filename button:

    ; 1) OPEN THE PAGE (WORKS)
        If _FFOpenURL("http://..../") Then
            FileWrite($log,"[INFO] Opened Page successfully." & @CRLF)
        Else
           FileWrite($log,"[ERROR] Could not open Page." & @error & " Extended Error Code = " & @extended  & @CRLF)
           MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not open Page.")
           Exit
        EndIf

    ; 2) WAIT FOR PAGE TO LOAD (WORKS)
        If _FFLoadWait() Then
            FileWrite($log,"[INFO] Waited to open page successfully." & @CRLF)
        Else
            FileWrite($log,"[ERROR] Could not wait for Page." & @error & " Extended Error Code = " & @extended  & @CRLF)
            MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not wait for Page.")
            Exit
        EndIf

    ; 3) SLEEP FOR 5 SECONDS 
        Sleep(5000)

    ; 4) CLICK THE BROWSE BUTTON 
    ;    (SAYS IT IS A SUCCESS BUT THE BUTTON NEVER GETS PRESSED!!)
        ;Click the "Choose File" button
        If _FFClick("filename", "id") Then
            FileWrite($log,"[INFO] Clicked the 'browse' button successfully." & @CRLF)
        Else
            FileWrite($log,"[ERROR] Could not click the 'browse' button." & @error & " Extended Error Code = " & @extended  & @CRLF)
            MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not click the 'browse' button.")
            Exit
        EndIf

    ; 5) WAIT FOR "FILE UPLOAD" WINDOW TO APPEAR
    ;    (FAILS BECAUSE BUTTON NEVER GOT PRESSED ABOVE)

        ;Wait for the file upload dialog to appear
        Local $result = WinWaitActive("File Upload","",10) ;Wait 10 seconds for "File Upload" window to appear
        If $result == 0 Then
           FileWrite($log,"[ERROR] Waited for 'File Upload' to show, but it never did. " & @error & " Extended Error Code = " & @extended  & @CRLF)
           MsgBox(0, "Error", " Waited for 'File Upload' to show, but it never did. ")
           Exit
        Else
           FileWrite($log,"[INFO] Opened 'File Upload' dialog successfully. " & @CRLF)
        EndIf

Here is the errors shown from the Scite console (I replaced the URL):

    _FFOpenURL: http://...
    __FFSend: try{window.content.top.document.location.href='http://...'}catch(e){'_FFCmd_Err';};

      Hello friends, I have a query, it happens that I have a matrix nxn, the first column of this contains each cell a number with 21 digits, when I pass this matrix to Excel I obviously write that number as 1,10016E + 20, I solved it by adding a * at the end of each cell, but I want it to be written as a text so that I do not have to remove that *, I searched in Google but could not find an effective solution, thanks in advance.

      Hi, This is my first post on the AutoIt Forums, I most of the time was able to get help from this community by merely searching though google and have been able to solve hundreds of problems this way, though in this case I was incapable of finding a solution to my problem. I am quite confident that it is a user error (And my fault) but I haven't been able to determine what I did wrong, any and all help would be greatly appreciated! I have uploaded my whole script pardon passwords to provide as much information as possible.
      I declared a global array at the top of the script and am having issues when I try to set it's value, and I fail to understand why.
      Error Message:
      "D:\Projects\AutoIt\Arena\Base.au3" (270) : ==> Subscript used on non-accessible variable.:

      Hey. I'm working on a new project and was wondering if there is a better way to "update" my Column E array. 
      Here is my code: 
      Local $nI  = 0                                                            ;Creates a name index of 0: nI = Name index Local $nII = 1                                                            ;Creates a name index of 1 for second loop: nII = Name Index 2 For    $iN = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1                                       ;Checks the roster for any names that appear twice      For $iN2 = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1          if $d_Names[$nI] == $d_Names[$nII] And $d_Names[$nII] <> "" Then              Local $timeSheetName = _ArraySearch($e_Names, $d_Names[$nI], 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found it", $d_Names[$nI] & " In column E on Row " & $timeSheetName)              Local $eI  = $timeSheetName + 1              ;ConsoleWrite($timeSheetName & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite($eI & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)              _Excel_RangeInsert($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, "E" & $eI & ":F" & $eI, $xlShiftDown)                                                                          ;Inserts a empty cell in columns E and F.              _Excel_RangeWrite($OpenWorkbook, $OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $d_Names[$nII], "E" & $eI)                                                                         ;Fills the empty cell in columns E with the doubled name              $aArray_Index = 2                                           ;Array element counter              For $Index = 2 To $IndexRows Step 1                        ;Loops through every row in the Excel file unto no rows are found or a null row is found                  $Array_Value_E = _Excel_RangeRead($OpenWorkbook, Default, "E"&$Index)                  $e_names[$aArray_Index] = $Array_Value_E                ;While the code loops every value in column E is stored in the E array (updating the array)                  $aArray_Index += 1              Next              ExitLoop          EndIf      Next      $nI  += 1      $nII += 1 Next Basically, It checks a roster for people whose name appears twice then inserts a new "row" for that person because they work in two different departments.
      I have to find that name however in Column E if two appear in column D. My code works but I think it is not as efficient as it could be. 
      Any ideas on how to improve the "update" for my array?
      (once it finds the double names in Column D it then searches for that name by going name by name in the Column E array and once it finds it inserts a new row. However, the E array doesn't have that new row stored in it so I have to "update" the array to properly find the next name)
      Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: Just assume I'm opening the excel file properly please do not add that code in, it only complicates your answer.
