Remove the "group by date modify" - view in the "save as" dialogue

Posted

Unlike in Windows File Explorer, there is no option "group by 'none'" in the save dialogue. Where can I change this recently appeared view?

This isn't a Firefox-specific question, since Windows 10 handles the save as dialog windows.

There isn't a group by button in the toolbar of the file selection dialogs in Windows. However, you can still access the group by option by right clicking on any empty space in the file section of the window. What I mean by this is, you can't right click the file, but if you right click next to a file, you will see the option.

Hope this helps.

Have the same issue, except that I changed the Windows 10 setting. Now I only get the groups when I am in a Firefox Save As/Open As popup. Got any idea how to fix that? Nevermind, I found that I couldn't access the right-click menu until I collapsed all the groups and clicked in the white space (with groups expanded the white space just selected the closest folder). Once I right clicked on the white space, the Group By option was available and I was able to choose None and blammo! no annoying Groups in Firefox's Save As popup.
