Hi all

When I "add attachment" I get a pop up window that lets me browse my folders. It lists files and folders alphabetically.

I would prefer the folders listed alphabetically at the top followed by the files listed alphabetically.

Does Thunderbird use a native file browser to select attachments or does it call one from the OS?

The File manager that I use from my OS is set to "sort folders before files" and it is working properly.

Is there a way to set this in Thunderbird? 68.7.0 (64-bit)

Solved: Right click on any file or folder in the popup box for attachments and you get a balloon with preference settings, choose "Sort Folder before Files".

Yes, I'm using MATE and it appears Thunderbird is calling Caja but it wasn't using the preferences set on the desktop, it must store a separate set of preferences for use within Thunderbird.
