Firefox won't open pictures in the photos app on my Mac

When I try to upload a picture to a website, Firefox opens the finder window to browse for my picture on my Mac. I choose 'Photos" in the directory tree. It used to open the list of photos in the photos app and allow me to choose a photo. But now it just sits there saying "Loading Images" forever. It never shows the contents of my photos app.

Both Safari and Google Chrome will still display my pictures and let me choose a photo.

Firefox Quantum 62.0.3 (64 bit)

You can check for sandbox security issues.

You can set this pref to 2 or 1 on the about:config page to reduce the sandbox security level.

  • security.sandbox.content.level = 1
  • close and restart Firefox to make the change effective.

If '1' still doesn't have effect then try '0' to disable the sandbox.

If this didn't work then undo/reverse the change and reset the pref via the right-click context menu to the default value.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
