Why is it not possible from within the browser to select a file from SD card? Will it be in future versions of FirefoxOS?

Sometimes I need to read a file from SD card, while in a webpage / webapp but it doesn't seem possible. I also can't move the needed files to the folders that are available for select (like images)

Thanks for your reply Alex!

I installed tfe-drive, and when browsing for files - from a webform, for (up)load, I can indeed open tfe-drive and browse for files.

But I didn't find any way to really get that file! I can open the file and view it on the phone, or if I double click the file it gets deleted (without telling me). But no way to get it really selected in the webform...

Seems to be fixed now. Great, thanks!
