Just installed Firefox, can't upload files?

I can't upload any files on any website. For example, trying to share photos on Facebook – nothing happens. It's supposed to bring up the Finder menu and let me pick the file to upload.

I just switched over from Chrome and am on MacOS.

Hi, that unfortunately doesn't solve the problem. If it was the case, there would be a pop-up that asks if I would like to approve Firefox's access to my files.

I restarted my computer and the problem is now fixed somehow. Thank you

Hi mitulxshah, that definitely should work.

Since you run a newer version of MacOS, could you check the application permissions to see whether Firefox is allowed to open Photos and/or Files and Folders?

I found this help article that points the way toward those settings (although as a Windows person, I can't test it myself):
