Seamonkey 2.49.3, Kubuntu 14.04

This started happening a few months ago so I can't pin it down to what changed.

I click on 'attach file' in email. Dialog window appears. I click on one file. If I move my cursor either up or down, in the window, without clicking, all the files from the first one I selected, get highlighted, and selected. Hard to explain it in any other way. My work-around so far is simply double click on one file and then repeat. Not good.

Anyone have any idea what may be causing this strange behavior? Seamonkey and Seamonkey mail are the only applications this happens in.

Safe mode produces the same results. However, a new profile works properly.

I looked through my profile but can't see anything out of the ordinary. Is there a config file for this? What controls that dialog window? Can i reset something? Can I remove something. Anything I can try?

Compare prefs.js between the broken & working Profiles & see if something stands out?

Thanks for the reply, therube. I started doing that last night, after posting, but there are so many differences that I can't figure out what could cause this. If I could figure out what 'section' to scrutinize, I may be able to narrow it down. Nothing jumps out at me as far as the naming convention is concerned.

I guess I'll load both into a word processor and see if I can eliminate all the items that are the same, leaving me with 'something' that I can try changing. I'm hoping prefs.js is where the problem is.

Well, suppose you could copy the prefs.js from broken Profile into the new Profile (with Browser closed) & see if the new Profile breaks.

Are snorkel & lear the same?

Interesting. Yes, they are both me. Not sure why that happened. Maybe because I used different browsers.

Anyway, I went through each perf.js and removed any line that was identical in both. I don't see how to attach the files, so I'll paste them here. I used an old profile where the 'attach file' dialog window works properly. I can't see anything that might make a difference. Hoping someone can see something.

Thanks in advance

I just copied the old prefs.js into the new profile and it works properly. So, its definitely something in there that is causing this behavior. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I solved this. I added one line from my old profile to my current profile and it looks like it solved my problem.

user_pref("ui.allow_platform_file_picker", false);

I have no clue why or how that line (or whatever the new version of that line should be) went missing sometime a few months ago.

Yeah, but that's where I started since it looked like the most likely item. Nothing else made sense. I still can't imagine what happened to change that behavior.

Thanks for your help.
