The Uploadfilebrowser doesn't show everytime all files in a directory. Sometimes the file directory is empty and sometimes not. Just tested it on windows vista business sp1 with all updates and mozilla firefox 3.0.1.

Sometimes the onclick on an displayed file fails too. The file is selected in the browser but the filename field is still empty.

The Windows filebrowser works properly in all applications, except firefox 3.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a website with an upload field. (maybe
2. Click in the upload field and select an folder which contents the file to upload.
3. If this time all files are shown, click again on the folder. Try this so often till theres no fileoutput.
4. If you type in the correct filename in the windows filebrowser, the files will be listed.
Actual Results:  
No files are shown in the directory.

Expected Results:  
All files should be shown.
