Firefox 40 and Windows 10 File Browser Inconsistency?

more options

Having upgraded to the latest Firefox (v40.0.2 as of this writing), and having upgraded to Windows 10 a week or so ago, I'm finding a curious inconsistency with Firefox vs other applications when it comes to the file browser. In my other apps and browsers, when I--for example-- right-click to save an image and the file browser comes up, ALL of my current Quick Access list displays.

However, in Firefox, specific ones go AWOL. As an example, I have "Recent Items" added *back* into my Quick Access list (Microsoft, really?!) and in other apps and browsers, my shortlink is present for me to select. This is NOT the case with Firefox, however. It's nowhere to be found, indicating a remaining incompatibility with Firefox for Windows 10 users.

Any suggestions, or is this a bug that will be corrected in an upcoming release?

Thanks, in advance! Timothy Kline

Upon further checking, it looks like Firefox *does* show all of the appropriate Quick Access links when OPENING a file. However, when SAVING any file type, my personalized pinned links do not appear.

Hope this helps.
