Though this solution is better it is still inferior to KDE's dialog. For 
example when trying to open a pdf file with say xpdf, one has to give the 
path as /usr/bin/xpdf. The moment one enters /usr/bin/ disk grinding starts 
and firefox tries to load the entire /usr/bin into memory.

I think this gnome(?) behaviour is hard coded into firefox and is tough to 
change. Someone please prove me wrong!

I switched to Konqueror completely just because of this problem.
