Description Daniele Scasciafratte 2022-01-28 13:21:46 UTC
If I want to export some emails with the KDE integration turned on the file picker is a folder picker but doesn't close and move on but still asking for a folder after picking one.

The Mozilla ticket I opened months ago https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1738929

1. Get thunderbird beta from mozilla (I am facing the issue with that)
2. select multiple email
3. right click and save as 


After picking a folder the dialog doesn't close and still asks me to pick a folder


Dialog closed and thunderbird that proceed with the task. If I turn off the xdg integration with KDE everything works.

I am on debian sid, the package https://packages.debian.org/sid/xdg-desktop-portal-kde is at 5.23.5. Instead KDE gear is still at 21.08.


I use Firefox Nightly and I don't have that issue on the save picker (i don't know the right name).

I'm pretty sure this was fixed by Fabian here:
https://invent.kde.org/frameworks/kio/-/merge_requests/713 < this one is not merged (yet)

It's not on the beta even, so I think you might need to wait for 5.24.0 (or build master if you're feeling like it) to confirm the fix.

Thanks for your bug report!
