Instead, when clicking on the text area, the browse window pops up. This is quite annoying for long locations that come from for instance the Terminal.app, that I used to be able to just copy over. Now the input field doesn't allow me to paste in it, and I have to go through the whole file browser. Although this will be a feature for many, I consider it a bug. At least it slows me down a lot, and I hope this feature is removed again. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to a page with a file upload thing, for instance a bugzilla bug, add attachment page 2. copy an absolute location from the terminal (pwd -> select -> copy) 3. try to select the test field of the file upload thing and paste Actual Results: a system dong is heard, and the file browser appears, trying to help to locate the file Expected Results: the text field should just get focus and allow me to paste my absolute file URI in it, so I don't have to traverse 20+ paths in the file browser At least I would like to have the ability to disable this behaviour somehow. I don't care if it is in the prefs.js file. I frequently upload patches through this method, and that seriously has become a great pain to do now.
Works in 1.0, so must be trunk-only. I think I saw some discussion that this change was going to happen for security purposes, and that since on most platforms you could paste into the filepicker (cmd-shift-G on the Mac) it was an acceptable trade-off. Someone should check to see whether this really happened already or if this was an unrelated regression (and either way, a regression window would be useful).

So this is WONTFIX if it's actually been implemented.
WONTFIX per bug Bug 258875.
