Default Firefox PROTIP: getting back to a normal Save As Dialogue.

Some may disagree but I find Firefox's default GTK "Save as" dialogue extremely annoying.

Compare this to this.

Here's how to get Firefox to display the second one.

1. In the address bar type about:config. You will get some warning about breaking things, go right on through this.
2. In the filter bar, type in ui.allow. You should now see the preference ui.allow_platform_file_picker.
3. Double click on this to change it to false.
4. Enjoy a much easier to use file save dialogue.

"Open" works like that, too. Thanks for that.

I've seen this before, though I haven't decide if I like it more then the GTK2+ file chooser.. but I'll keep it on one of my systems for awhile and see how it fits.

Perhaps this should be in the Guides section of the site..

Absolutely, no single setting will suite everyone. I'm sure a mod will move this if they want.

It should be noted that this will also work in Thunderbird, perhaps other Mozilla-based programs.

Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Config Editor.. same name.
