I'm using firefox 119.0.1 Version on a Steam deck(SteamOS) and installed using the Discover app

when in browser i cannot click on the "Open the file browser" icon that appears on websites. Also i cannot open the Downloads folder within the Menu bar from firefox I tried entering into safe-mode and still couldn't open I also tried using another User Profile under "Right click Firefox -> firefox profile manager" to try to see if it was something from my user profile that was causing the issue but i also couldnt open in another profile.

I also tried on a different browser to see if it was my device problem but i could open it. i tried on Brave and Chrome and it worked.

i dont know what to do, this was working normally last week and now it doesnt work, Even in another profile with no configuration done no extension and not logged in the "Open file" button doesnt work

If you install the packages and it fixes the issue, at least you will know where the issue lies.

You could install a version of Firefox that does not require these packages, like the official Mozilla build.

SteamOS seems to be missing the portal packages needed for the file chooser:

sudo pacman -S xdg-desktop-portal-gtk
sudo pacman -S xdg-desktop-portal-kde

i dont think installing packages directly on the steamos will be useful on the long run, when the console gets updated the pacman packages get deleted as i heard from another source, i tried reinstalling Firefox from the Discover app but the problem still persisted
