Description

as the title says, I'm curious how to enable (or fix) the absence of vfs mounts (via nautilus).

The following screenshot shows nautilus with an ssh and a cifs mount, but these are not available to firefox/thunderbird... which is a Pain In The Arse.

Ideas, it seems there used to be [some] support via an old interface
as mentioned here, but nothing easy to find in firefox 10.

Just had a surprise, what does seem to work is the print widget when printing to a file, here I seem to be able to select as I wish. I even learned that if not yet mounted, it will even mount automatically!
The request is thus to use the same options in the open file widget as does the print (to file) widget.

This may be handled by Milan's build of JDS (pkg.opensolaris.cz:10000) but the main patches come from upstream. Check with Solaris 11.x for resolution as oi is still a work in progress. I'll let him decide to reopen this ticket if he accepts the work.
