User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:64.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/64.0

Steps to reproduce:

1. CTRL+S Save Page As
2. Choose HTML only
3. Push Save

Actual results:

The choice is switched to "Webpage Complete" before the action begins.
(But that is too fast for the user to see.)
As is evidenced by what is saved on disk,
and as is evidenced by "Webpage Complete" being the default chosen the
next time the user hits CTRL+S.

So try as he may, "HTML Only" cannot really be chosen.
There always will be a directory created "..._files" anyway.
I can reproduce this with Firefox64 on Ubuntu18.04LTS and this is a regression.

Unfortunately there's no fix available for it. I tried to get the filter as a property from the dialog but it's saves as a property of an inner widget (GtkFileChooserWidget) and only when GtkFileChooserDialog fallback is used - so it's really hacky approach which may lead to even more failures.

I suggest to switch back to GtkFileChooserDialog and use GtkFileChooserNative under a pref which makes sense for KDE users and/or enable it for KDE only by default. When is fixed we can enable it for the appropriate Gtk+ version only.

Also add widget.allow-gtk-native-file-chooser preference value to force enable on all systems.

[Triage Comment]
Works around a Linux-only GTK bug which causes "HTML Only" webpage saving to not work. Approved for 65.0b11.

Attachment #9035609 - Flags: approval-mozilla-beta? → approval-mozilla-beta+

I successfully reproduced the issue on Firefox Beta 64.0b4 under Ubuntu 18.04 (x64) using the STR from Comment 0.

The issue is no longer reproducible on Firefox Beta 65.0b11 and latest Nightly 66.0a1 (2019-01-15) under Ubuntu 18.04 (x64).
