Are you using this guide? http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/import-from-posterous/

Have you tried using another browser? http://browsehappy.com
You cannot upload a zip file. Posterous sends you a .zip file which you need to open to retrieve the files inside. Per the guide at http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/import-from-posterous/ you'll need to upload the wordpress_export_1.xml file, not the one you tried to import. Please see what Staff amightywp says in this thread http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/posterous-download-zip-folder-will-not-extract-for-import?replies=14#post-1242796
