This bug is so old (and it's an upstream bug).
At work I'm getting really tired of telling my 50 users that I can't help them 
and that they should copy their files from the company's shares to a temporary 
local directory before uploading them to the backoffice.
They're getting really tired of working around that, too.

Is there a chance the patch on the upstream bug (filepicker-fix.patch
v2) would be added to Ubuntu's Firefox if I test and adapt it ?
