Select Files to Upload Dialog/Window Is Not Retina Quality on Firefox 32 Mac

Firefox 32.0.2 on Mac OS X 10.9.4.

For some reason, the Select File(s) to Upload dialog/window that many sites open when adding a file to upload to a page is not Retina quality on Firefox.

This select files to upload dialog is retina quality on other browsers, such as Chrome and Safari.

Any ideas...?

I found out that this is solved when I disable the Shockwave Flash plugin.

Then the dialog title is actually "File Upload" instead of "Select File(s) to Upload", and is full retina quality.

But when I enable the Flash plugin, the dialog goes back to "Select File(s) to Upload".

Not on all sites though. But, for example, on Imgur it does.

On Facebook it doesn't.

I think it depends whether a site uses a Flash file dialog chooser?

Not sure, but don't like it!
