Open dialog problem

HELLO EVERYONE
The problem is when i open a file from any software like adobe / save a file /upload a file
,when i enter certain words it will automatically pick some files/folders name in drop-box (same initials to the words I entered) but it did not pick the files/folders name with same initials.

EXAMPLE- In uploaded Photo I put bro as you see it has to pic folder browser and show in drop-box but it did not pick that
please help in this regard and thanks for your efforts

The default folder it opened to was Program Files (X86)\Mozilla Firefox which does not have any file or folder in it that starts with bro so it has nothing it can show you.

The Save and Open dialogs normally open to the last folder you were in the last time you did a save or open.

What has worked for me is:
  • Go to Options (you can also type about : preferences in the Address bar - without the spaces)
  • Select the General tab
  • Set a "Save files to" location
  • Choose "Always ask me where to save files"

thanks for your efforts but i meant to say it just an example and it everywhere like when you want to open a file in adobe/nitro pdf , once the open dialog box opens it did not work like that as it previously did.I think the problem occurred after June/2015 update but don't want to restore or reset my computer to previous point

I do not have a solution, but maybe I can help to further document the issue:

The screenshot above is from Notepad > File > Save As...

@Others,
The prompt with objects that match what is being typed is what the OP is missing. I get that prompt/match even after all OS updates.

That's my point.

In your example (t) there is a test folder so you see the prompts.

In hotbuddy723's example, he typed bro but there is no file or folder starting with bro in the Program Files (X86)\Mozilla Firefox folder so no prompt is shown. If he had entered a then

AccessibleMarshal.dll
application


would have shown in the Prompt area.



That's the way it's supposed to work.

@Ztruker,
Not only did I miss seeing the folder that the dialog box had opened to in the original post screenshot, I missed seeing your post #2 all together. Let's see if the hotbuddy723 can provide a screenshot that demonstrates the problem.

He is saying that the folder browser did not appear in the suggestions.
