I don't think this is a bug in Thunderbird but rather a bug in the native Mac OS filepicker that should say "select" or maybe "pick this" instead of saying open. I'm not sure we can customize this... Neil, any thoughts?

I don't know about the Mac but I don't think Windows lets you change it either.
Severity: normal → minor

This is a problem on Linux too.
It seems the FilePicker in this case is called with Mode="select_folder" and then the native toolkit (GTK, QT, Win32,...) will pick the text on the button (Open). This mode is probably needed to allow choosing a folder only.

When saving one attachment, Mode="save" picks the correct text (Save). But it's aim is to choose a folder but also get a filename from the user (usually prefilled).

So it is probably necessary to keep both modes separate. I don't know if there are any other modes available from the toolkit which would help here.

Per comment 4, this is not only seen on MAC, but also on Linux -> Platform: All (in lack of more refined options)
OS: Mac OS X → All
Hardware: x86 → All
