Patches are all up to date as of this morning (about 1700 UTC).

In firefox, a number of dialog boxes ... maybe all of them ... that involve 
saving a file or browsing for a file are broken.

Example:  I need Google Chrome for a site that won't work with anything 
else.  The repo line I found is out of date, so I went to their install 
website.  Selected 64-bit deb, get the download dialog, click OK, then 
nothing.  Never shows up no matter whether I accept the default path or 
change it.  Website reacts like it got the "OK, I'm done signal" and 
progresses to the next page.

I thought maybe it was that old problem that was worked around by using the 
LD_PRELOAD hack, but no (nor renaming /opt/trinity/share/kgtk/preload). 
Thought they were worth a try before posting.
