Hiding FileUploader during upload proccess stops uploading in Firefox

First of all, thanks for the great control!

I've found an issue during upload process using Firefox and Google Chrome. My FileUploader control was placed within an Ajax Control Toolkit TabControl. When the DIV containing the FileUploader gets invisible (changing the active tab) during the process of file uploading (in Firefox and Chrome) the file simply stops uploading. In IE this behaviour does not occur. Is there any workaround for this?

This simple snippet reproduces this behaviour:

<input type="button" id="hide" value="hide" onclick="document.getElementById('div1').style.display='none';" />
<input type="button" id="show" value="show" onclick="document.getElementById('div1').style.display='';" />
<br />
<div id="div1">
    <fjx:FileUploader ID="FileUploader1" runat="server" />

Thanks in advance
