User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032619 Firefox/3.0b5
Build Identifier: 2.0.0.12

Double clicking on a directory button under "browse for other folders" in the SaveAs dialog box generates duplicate entries in the box with the file names. A single click reverts this to a proper list with all entries listed only once.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Find an email with an attachment
2 [review].Open the Save As dialog box
3.Double click on any of the directory buttons just under "browse for other folders" (please open this first if this option is collapsed).
Actual Results:  
Entries in the file list are displayed twice (almost always all of them; sometimes an entry stays listed only once).

Expected Results:  
Double clicking should behave exactly the same as single clicking the directory button, or should trigger another type of event (like making a subdirectory at that point or renaming the directory, etcetera).

That "Browse for other folders" disclosure button only appears in the system file picker.  Thunderbird has no control over what happens in there.

BTW, to use Thunderbird's own file picker, set the preference ui.allow_platform_file_picker to false.
