Firefox ignores ACCEPT value in FORM elements
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/188.8.131.52 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/220.127.116.11 As per http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html#edef-FORM a browser should (OK, "may") use the ACCEPT element value to set the file-type filter for file upload operations (INPUT TYPE=FILE). Firefox has a file-type selector, but it is fixed as "all types". Firefox also appears to ignore the ACCEPT-CHARSET element. (IE appears also to ignore ACCEPT; it has 3 predefined choices "all files", "images", and "HTML") Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Navigate to above page 2. Click "Browse" Actual Results: Firefox shows a list of all files. The file-type selector cannot be changed. Expected Results: Firefox should show a list of files matching the content-type specified in the FORM element, as determined by local mapping e.g. /etc/mime.types. Firefox should enable the file-type selector to show the list of accepted types, plus "all files". The first element in the accept list should be selected by default. A wildcard function would be nice; allow accept="image/*" for instance.
