User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0 Build ID: 2014101000 Steps to reproduce: This is specific to Apple OS/X operating system, v10.9 1. Create a new message 2. Open the Attachment selection dialog Actual results: a. See that remotely mounted volumes are not listed and cannot be accessed b. Listed folder content can be out-of-date Expected results: 1. Remote volumes should be listed and available 2. Folder contents should reflect reality
Tested it on OS X 10.10 and there is appearing a "Shared" which I think is what reporter was looking for. The amount of folders which appear on the sidebar can be setup on Finder/Preferences/Sidebar. Does this solves your problem, Jim?
Hi, Jim. I have found bug 1155441, also reported by you. Are those "remotely mounted volumes" on comment 0 on a Samba server?
Yes, the volumes are mounted with SMB. The Attachment/Directory dialog looks like Finder but is not. It seems to get a directory snapshot when TB starts, and is not refreshed or refresh-able after that. If a remote mount drops for any reason, there is no way to recover it in the Attachment dialog. If an item is added to a folder, it does not show in the attachment dialog. A workaround I found that is reliable is to use Finder, locate the attachment file, and drag it to the message's attachment window.
As it happens, this is also an issue with Firefox v50.1. (and persists for Thunderbird v45.5.) As was demonstrated by the disgruntled user, after adding a file to a folder on a remotely mounted volume, Firefox's Browse window could not find that file. It was found by Finder; not much use in this case since drag-n-drop was not implemented by the web page.
