Firefox won't show ever the window to save files or to open files. It happens on any website. If I press ctrl+S the "save as" window does not appear. If I try, on any page, to open a file for upload the window to select the file does not show.

Please advise!

OS: Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS Firefox Version: 118.0.2 (64-bit) (installed through Snap)
