Hi Michael,

I tested this issue on Ubuntu 16.04 x 64 with the latest Firefox release 50.0. Login to Typo3 Backend  http://cms-next.demo.typo3.org/typo3/ with "admin" and "password" credentials, but I didn't find " Upload files " button.

Can you please provide your crash report ID from about:crashes?

Hi Roxana,

thank you very much for spending time on this issue! The TYPO3 backend demo server ha very restricted access, that's why even "admin" is not authorized to upload files.

Of course I can provide you the crash id(s):

Kind regards,

Hi Michael,

AFAIK, I'm afraid that is not much we can do with this crash report, since we're missing symbols. It would be great if you could try to reproduce the issue on an official Mozilla build and submit a crash report from there.
Also, it is possible to provide some test credentials without restriction for upload files so I can test this on my end ?

Hi Roxana,

as requested I've downloaded the current Firefox release from Mozilla. Extracted in local folder. and started locally from bash. Verified with "Help"/"About Firefox" that I'm really using the original Mozilla version and not the OpenSuse packaged distribution version.


The original Mozilla version of Firefox uses a different "File upload" "select file" dialogue than the OpenSuse version. It seems, that on OpenSuse a KDE's "Dolphin" dialogues is opened.

Screenshots attached.

I guess we can put this issue on hold for a while, I'll open an issue in OpenSuse's bugzilla with reference to this issue.

funny :-) - No need for TYPO3 access anymore: Attachement upload here in bugzilla.mozilla.org also has the same "upload / search for files" button ("Durchsuchen" in German) as TYPO3. 

Pressing "Cancel" in this dialogue ALSO crashes firefox in OpenSuse's firefox version...

Thank you for the diagnosis.
Not much point tracking this in Mozilla's tracker as this is not Mozilla code.
