Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

When I tried to upload files to launchpad in a different bug I suddenly uploaded wrong file.

Then i noticed that when selecting a file in the upload dialog it after some seconds steps to the previous file.

So, if I select a file and then go for the Open button it will upload the file that is before the one I selected.
The only way to upload a file is to doubleclick on the file that I want to upload.

This just happened to me also.

It's a pretty dangerous bug, it could be very easy for someone to upload confidential files unintentionally.
