 > In my initial tests, on FF I opened a file from location `A`. In TB I
 went ctrl-O and it started the dialog at location `A` (so where did it get
 that from?), so I changed it to use location `B`. I closed TB, opened TB,
 and on ctrl-O it used location `B`.

 Okay, the plot thickens. I opened the file by navigating via the URL bar.
 That's cool. The bug occurs if one opens the file Ctrl+O first, then close
 the browser and reopens it. Adding the ux team for input as to whether we
 want to change anything here.
