I have had a similar problem over HTTPS with flash player 8/9.

After browsing the adobe forums the problem seam's to be, and i quote
here ............

There is a Flash-Player-and-Firefox issue with putting ":443" in the
url. For standard http port 80 and https port 443, when Firefox returns
policy files to the player, unfortunately Firefox strips off the port
from the url, which causes Flash Player to think that the incorrect
policy file was returned (as the returned url does not exactly match
what Flash Player wanted), so the file upload will not be permitted.
