Following a recent upgrade to OS X Mavericks I'm having problems with using the file browser when trying to upload a file - example, facebook or Google+ upload image. I click on the appropriate button to open the browser, it opens for a short while, maybe a second or two, then closes before a file can be picked.

Ok, try restoring and restarting Firefox. It's the solution of many problems. If it does'nt work, Go for a fresh install or see the topic 'firefox crashes' in the help corner of firefox. Hope it Helps! Thank me later, if it works :D

I can confirm a similar problem here. Any instance of using the file browser, it opens up and is fine until I double click on any folder. It immediately closed.

It still does it with all extensions disabled and just for fun, in safe mode.

I've restored & restarted. I've also gone for a completely fresh install.

Drag and drop of files, on pages that support it, work fine.

I see you had a similar problem during a beta phase but couldn't reproduce.

It doesn't seem to be a problem if I use the 'Browse' button on this page but it's definitely a problem on both Facebook and Google+
