Haven't used Librewolf or Tor browsers, I'd ask those who make
them if this kind of functionality is supposed to be there
(if you're sure that it is and the issue is clearly regarding
the dialog, are there any other file open dialogs there -- like
for posting file attachments on websites, and if there are, do
_these_ work properly or not?).

An exact distro name (iso image filename, perfectly) would be
helpful; a reproducer like I've mentioned in a message just sent
to a nearby thread here would be very helpful, feel free to file:
(again, do not presume the *package* maintainer knows the *OS*
and its setup you're running, please help him help you through
providing ISO name, /etc/altlinux-release contents, and
`rpm -q evolution` output); posting a bug link here is welcome,
of course.

But having two similar issues in unrelated packages hints that
something's broken in the common bits; maybe try reproducing it
off a LiveCD if it's provided by the particular distro you use.

And thanks for taking the time and effort to post those!
