Firefox/Xubuntu - get network files with the file picker

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.214.181

Hi Everyone, 

With the new FIREFOX 45, we lost access to mounts folder (smb shares) in the file picker.
Tested on : xubuntu 14.04 and xubuntu 16.04 LTS.
It's now allow you to choose only local files.
But it's still possible to get networks file by typing direct path in the adress fiel, but it's not useful at all.

This is a bug ? Is there a way to fix this ? 

Thx.

Best regards, 

Nicolas
