Details:
It's at
chrome://global/content/filepicker.xul

It can be activated for use in "file - save" commands by the preference
ui.allow_platform_file_picker

But unfortunately only on Linux, as stated here:
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Ui.allow_platform_file_picker

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to find "file_picker", "filepicker", or just "picker" in about:config
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
no results related to enabling the XUL file-picker
chrome://global/content/filepicker.xul

Expected Results:  
chrome://global/content/filepicker.xul is present in Windows installation of Firefox. User wants to use it.

Additional Information:
Windows XP file-picker looks ugly.
To replace it with Firefox file-picker would be nice.
Version: unspecified → 3.6 Branch
It's important for the automation test of websites. Because javascripts in extensions cannot control the windows native file picker, if an XUL file picker can be provided, javascripts can do actions on it.
Severity: minor → S4
