Thread: Gnome GTK file chooser/picker changed in 1.5.0.4 or 1.5.0.3?

  1. Gnome GTK file chooser/picker changed in 1.5.0.4 or 1.5.0.3?

    Hi

    Has anyone else experienced a change in the widget used to handle the
    "File > Open" or "Download > Save As" dialogs in Linux? I use RHEL 4,
    and Firefox used to use the standard GTK filechooser (which has nice
    because it has a list of favorites). I updated to 1.5.0.4 yesterday,
    and now the filechooser is very basic and no longer looks like the
    standard Gnome filechooser.

    Has anyone else experienced this, and is it a bug that needs to be filed
    or a new "feature"?

    Thanks for your help!

    Chris

    I forgot to mention that I'm not sure if I was previously using 1.5.0.2
    or 1.5.0.3 prior to upgrading to 1.5.0.4.

    How did you update? via Mozilla or via a (official?) RHEL repo?

    Thanks, Jedi Fans

    I originally installed using from Mozilla.com, and I updated from within
    Firefox (so via Mozilla).

    If you are sure that was all you did, i would suggest reinstalling
    it (or downloading the .tar.gz directly from moz and untar), if that
    doesn't fix it, post back.

    Thanks, Jedi Fans

    I fresh installed both 1.5.0.3 and 1.5.0.4 from Mozilla.com, and sure
    enough, I see the change happens from 1.5.0.3 to 1.5.0.4.

    (I tried posting screen shots of the two different versions of the
    filechooser, but so far the message hasn't posted, so maybe the forum
    doesn't accept attachments.)

    I vaguely recall there being changes to the file picker, but not in the
    1.5.0.x code.
    Try this:
    Go to the URL: about:config
    Search for the preference |ui.allow_platform_file_picker|.
    Double-click on it.

    If you don't see it, right-click on any preference, and select
    'New-->Boolean'.

    Thanks Chris

    My about:config didn't have that key, so I tried adding it and restarted
    Firefox. However, the file picker did not change.

    I copied and pasted the preference key from the post, so at least I know
    I didn't type it wrong. I also tried using both "true" and "false"
    values for the boolean, but neither of them changed the file picker.

    I found an interesting comment in this bug -- maybe I'll try posting there:

  10. Re: Gnome GTK file chooser/picker changed in 1.5.0.4 or 1.5.0.3?

    This bug fix turns out to be the culprit. Apparently the pre- GTK 2.6.3
    file chooser has some annoying bugs, so the team changed Firefox to not
    use it. So those of us with an old GTK will just have to settle for the
    basic (although presumably less bug-prone) file chooser.
