Bug Description

Triggering a <input type="file"> in the HTML5 launcher does not open a file picker and results in the error, "Content requested a file picker, but the application hasn't provided one".

In contrast, the browser launches a Content Hub peer picker, accepts a content import, and turns it into a HTML5 File object.

This is seen in the current devel channel (r2).

This issue affects a component which has been replaced by webapp-container, which has support for this feature. The recommendation is to switch to hosting the app in webapp-container.
