Dolphin bugs when opened from Firefox

Recently, Dolphin has been acting strangely for me. When downloading or uploading files in Firefox, the only nonhidden folder in my /home folder I’m able to open is /home/downloads.
None of the other nonhidden folders are accessible, or even visible. Hidden folders are visible and accessible. This is super annoying as I have to move/copy all files I want to share through Firefox, to the /home/downloads folder before Firefox can access them. I think it’s been this way for the past ~3 weeks.

My inxi output can be found below

Can’t help sorry, I tested and it works for me, on Testing branch (same packages version).

//EDIT: did you modify [don’t remember the parameter name] to have the QT native file explorer instead of the GTK one (I think)?

Are there any settings I may have messed with? I’m using standard firejail profiles for both Dolphin and Firefox.
Not sure how to check GTK/QT preference, unfortunately.

///EDIT: The culprit seems to be the firejail profile for Firefox, because I can access all of my folders after running Firefox with firejail --noprofile firefox

You would know if you had changed the default Firefox file explorer. Don’t look this way I think.

But yeah if you have done something with ‘firejail’ or other security tools, I wouldn’t think twice before verifying what you have done there.

I’ll have to learn how to make a custom firejail profile for firefox, i guess.
Will report back here when it’s solved :v:
