If the appendFilter mask does not properly recognize wildcards. Example: mask = "*.xpi" correctly displays all files ending with ".xpi", but mask = "a*.xpi" still displays the same files but are disabled. It would appear that if the "*" is used, it must be the only character to the left of the period in a "fname.ext" mask. // Works var mask = "*.xpi"; var fp = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/filepicker;1"] .createInstance(Components.interfaces.nsIFilePicker); fp.init(window, "Dialog Title", Components.interfaces.nsIFilePicker.modeOpen); fp.appendFilter(mask, mask); var rv = fp.show(); // Does not work var mask = "a*.xpi"; var fp = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/filepicker;1"] .createInstance(Components.interfaces.nsIFilePicker); fp.init(window, "Dialog Title", Components.interfaces.nsIFilePicker.modeOpen); fp.appendFilter(mask, mask); var rv = fp.show(); Reproducible: Always Actual Results: All choices disabled in filepicker dialog when using "a*.xpi" mask. Expected Results: Enabled choices matching "a*.xpi" mask. The filepicker works as expected in Fx2 builds. Does not work in Fx3 builds.

Download this testcase to an otherwise empty directory on your computer, then open it from there (using File : Open File). When you click on either button ("Working File Picker" or "Broken File Picker") you'll be prompted to allow the browser to "request enhanced capabilities" -- you will need to click "Allow" for the testcase to work. I've confirmed that this problem exists in FF3 on OS X (and also in 1.9.0-branch Camino), but not in FF2 on OS X, or in either FF3 or FF2 on Windows and Linux. So I suppose the problem must be somewhere in Cocoa widgets' nsFilePicker.mm.

See also bug 369756, which I don't think is the same as this.
Doesn't really meet the "wanted" criteria (security, stability, regression from maintenance release) for 1.9.0.x. However, we'll look at a reviewed and baked patch.
Flags: wanted1.9.0.x? → wanted1.9.0.x-
Moving to p3 because no activity for at least 1 year(s). See https://github.com/mozilla/bug-handling/blob/master/policy/triage-bugzilla.md#how-do-you-triage for more information
