Steps to reproduce:

I'm trying to upload my gpg key (.asc file) to whiteout.io web app.

Actual results:

I can only select wallpapers, gallery, videos etc and not browse sd card for the file.

Expected results:

I should have given an option to browse files in sd card. I have 'Files' app installed.

This is Firefox OS 1.3 on ZTE Open C

finder app shows up in the browser. i think a file manager that can register itself with browser should be installed by default.

Thinking about it, neither does Android nor iPhone has a file manager installed by default. But FirefoxOS was supposed to be a change from all that.
I know what you are talking about, you cant view any of the files from sd card or the phone for that fact other than picture and stuff like that. the only solution I know of that I have been using is I have installed a file manager that you can access from that list give while searching files. I agree that this should be an added feature... not so much a file browser pre-installed but a more in-depth access to storage media from that menu.
