This is the same problem listed below. Recently upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS and Firefox 117.0 a few weeks ago and can't get the files to attach. In fact it won't open the file system. Tried removing all extensions as suggested and rebooting, but nothing changed.

The snap package needs a portal to show the file picker:

sudo apt install xdg-desktop-portal-gtk
