Firefox for Linux: Upload lacks search ability

The title is pretty descriptive of the issue.

I have been trying to migrate older computer users over to Linux and have found a number of unusual problems.

One of them is that Firefox for Linux seems to lack a feature that exists on Windows: when you open the file upload window, there is no ability to search for the file you want. Instead you have to already know where/what it is, something that can be problematic at times.

Is this a known issue?

I can't speak for all distros, but at least on Kubuntu it is an issue.

I think that is something of a O/S file manager and not something firefox can fix. It probably uses O/S file manager as the file manager.
