I'm using Firefox 59.0.1 on a Samsung Galaxy C8 phone running Android version 7.1.1
The problem I have happens when I try to select a file to upload to a forum or an online photo gallery. When I'm at the screen to choose the file, I can click the "Browse for file" button, but nothing happens. It doesn't respond. I'm expecting to get a screen where I can choose the file. If I use the inbuilt Samsung browser, I am able to attach and upload files, so I'm guessing it's a specific Firefox problem.
This has always been a problem on this phone, regardless of browser version, but I don't know why it's happening and how to fix it.
Please point me in the right direction to solve this problem.

I am using both chrome and Firefox on Android and now I am seriously considering to say goodbye to chrome, since it's ridiculously malfunctioning tap sync feature(which in fact loses most of the taps when there are 100+ of them). However, there is a single short-coming with Firefox for Android, which I would like to fix before I completely migrate to Firefox, or at least want to know if it is fixable.
Floating context menu on Firefox Android do not interact with other apps(e.g. google translator or Wikipedia app, or even Firefox Focus). The first picture is my Firefox(ver. 59.0.1), and the context menu only has 'copy, share, select all, search google'. This is not enough for me, cuz i want to look up words while surfing without having to constantly close app and turn on other dictionary apps.
I want to have shortcuts of those apps, like many other apps in my phone does(e.g. chrome, whatsapp, guardian, google keep, etc.) See the second picture of chrome, where the side menu of the original floating menu has more than five app shortcuts. I need this and want this.
Surprisingly, this feature (not sure if it can be called 'feature' though) was fully functioning on Firefox Focus(3rd picture). I assume this is because Focus is based on Blink engine which is same as Chrome, whereas Firefox for Android is based on Gecko engine. I just found that out from days of searching... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox_Focus I checked Firefox Nightly version as well, but it turned out exactly same as Firefox Android 59.0.1.
So I came to conclusion that this problem might come from the difference of the engine. Even so, that doesn't necessarily mean that it cannot be modified, isn't it?
Even though I have absolutely no experience and knowledge on android programming, I've searched and read as much as information possible to exactly understand the cause of this problem. I've even read the entire configuration description, hoping to find one single 'about:config' entry that will turn this around. But I haven't been lucky so far. (BTW, this configuration list is very comprehensive and helpful. https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-release/source/modules/libpref/init/all.js)
Well, I can just use those apps that receive "copied text" and pops up(such as google translator, reverso, or linguee), but I still want to try this in Firefox menu. I've spend too much time to give up now. In addition, Firefox add-on on android were not much helpful. It's really weird when they are on the bottom of the main option menu.
It will be really great if anyone can help me out, or at least explain to me if it is possible or not and why. Thanks in advance.
