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.
