File browser pop up never came.

The snap file picker requires a portal:

sudo apt install xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

Screenshots and steps to replicate. The option to show in folder works for me. see screenshot Zoom... here's a link to a test call in the browser that works for me. https://zoom.us/test I ass-u-me you have the app installed. Show what happens in the logs when you try to run it from Firefox. Let me install it and see what happens.
