Upon investigating this issue with IE, I have found the problem. Once again IE sucks. I found this.
IE assumes that the clicking of a link heralds a new navigation where the current page contents will be replaced. As part of the process for perparing for that it halts the code that animates the GIFs. I doubt there is anything you can do about it (unless you aren't actually navigating in which case use return false in the onclick event).

There were 2 solutions, but as I am not a coder I don't understand how to implement this. Could someone help. This is one of the few things I wish was included in the form component.

1.
The accepted solution did not work for me.
After some more research I came across this workaround, and it actually does work.
Here is the gist of it:
<script>
function showProgress() {
var pb = document.getElementById("progressBar");
pb.innerHTML = '<img src="./progress-bar.gif" width="200" height ="40"/>';
pb.style.display = '';
}
</script>

and in your html:
<input type="submit" value="Submit" onclick="showProgress()" />
<div id="progressBar" style="display: none;"><img src="./progress-bar.gif" width="200" height ="40"/></div>

So when the form is submitted the img tag is inserted which for some reason it is not effected by the ie animation issues.
Tested in Firefox, ie6, ie7 and ie8.

I tried the solution given by AnthonyWJones above by adding -

return false;

at the end of the script in the clicked link and it worked. Thanks!

As I'm using ajax validation, think that didn't exist when this topic started, this solution was partially helpful.
The problem is that the loading gif appears onsubmit (click) even if the form didn't validated and files didn't start uploading…

As I'm using jQuery, this example is done with jQuery and one page form. Will make some tests for multi-page forms or if somebody get how to obtain the variable, please post it.
EDIT: Multipage variable added

Add a Free Text field, and put this code inside:
<div id="loading" style="display: none;">
	Please wait, we are uploading the files <br /> 
	<img src="[CHANGE_THIS_TO_YOUR_PATH]/ajax-loader.gif" alt="" />
</div>
 
<script type="text/javascript">
/* <![CDATA[ */
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
 
	var formId 	= jQuery('form input[name="form[formId]"]').val(),
		form 	= rsfp_getForm(formId),
		page 	= '{page}';
 
	jQuery('#Submit').click( function () {
		var Valid = ajaxValidation(form, page);
		if (Valid) { 
			jQuery('#loading').css('display','block');
		}
	});
});
/* ]]> */
</script>

You can make your own loading gif and change style params for it, however, you need one gif for this example, use the link provided in the first answer.

Hope not missing something....
