Description

a year ago
The current implementation does neither include dotfiles nor dotdirectories, e.g. everything starting with a '.'.

In comparision, Chrome's old webkitDirectory API does include these files. I think they should not be ommited!
This was a deliberate decision - see bug 1209924. If you want to try and convince the security guys to change their mind then feel free, but this doesn't block shipping.
No longer blocks: 1188880
Depends on: 1209924

Thanks. I strongly oppose any filename-based filtering as you might have guessed. I commented in the relevant bugs:
