File browser combo box too large

Bug #333050 reported by Antonio Roberts on 2009-02-22
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
firefox-3.5 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I was uploading a photo to Flickr and the combo box to select the flie type was really long, it went completely off the screen. The screenshot attached illustrates this

To replicate this:
Login to Flickr - you might need a pro account as that's the only version that allows video upload
Try to manually upload a photo using the flash upload thingy

I think the combo box might need to be truncated in cases such as this

I was using Ubuntu Hardy on a 800 x 600 screen

Still exists in karmic.
To reproduce install Adobe flash,
use FireFox and log in into Flickr,
try to upload a file,
the filedialog opens and all possible filetypes are added to a single line in the combo box.

Without Flash, an empty filetype combo is shown (Which will fit any screenwidth.).

This don't happen in Chrome, the filetype combo is missing totally here.

I suggest to assign this bug to the Firefox package.

I'm testing with Linux ubuntu910 2.6.31-17-generic #54-Ubuntu SMP Thu Dec 10 16:20:31 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux and Firefox 3.5.7
