Essentially in dialogs that operate files/folders. Maybe it gets too tricky finding the click policy of various Desktop Enviroments, but at least include an option that enables or disables it. If exists an var that can be changed to do this, i'm not aware of it, and therefore i'm sorry for the enchancement report. When i refer to click policy, i refer to double-click or single click to open files or folders. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Summary: Following OS click policy → Follow OS policy about single- vs double-clicking files
I believe Firefox uses standard GTK+ 1 or GTK+ 2 API calls. Someone please confirm or refute this. If so, then this problem should be taken up with the GTK+ runtime environment people. I'm setting it to NEW to get a developer response.

The problem with this is that selecting and loading files are completely different operations than working with links in a browser.
I think this is about the filepicker bits? The Linux filepicker we use is anything but perfect, by 1.0 we'll hopefully be using the GTK 2.4 and higher filepicker. The upcoming qt port will use native dialogs as well. I don't think there's any major WMs that do single click in filepickers, which is why we're using double-click, correct me if I'm wrong here.
