Indeed, by default file-roller will temporarily unpack files in the
user's cache folder (it can in some cases fall back to the user's home
directory, or a temporary directory, see

Given this, I wonder whether it would be acceptable to allow firefox
(and other browser snaps) to read files under @{HOME}/.cache/fr-*/, by
amending an existing snapd interface.

Or could file-roller be patched to use the OpenFile method of the
FileChooser portal (
method-org-freedesktop-portal-FileChooser.OpenFile)? Would you mind
filing a file-roller bug at
roller/-/issues to request this, and link back to it here?
