On Loki 0.4.1, when using the latest Google Chrome Version 59.0.3071.86 (Official Build) (64-bit), when trying to upload a file to a web page with the invoked Pantheon File Browser, somehow Chrome loses all inputs until Chrome is restarted completely.

If the page accepts drag and drop, it'll work just fine as a work around.

Any idea as to what's going on here?

So I just had a Files and OS update get pushed, and suddenly this is no longer an issue. That was fast! Very awesome... so far I've been loving Elementary OS!


Files 0.3.5 update fixed this issue. Thank you.


Bug fix found. it is caused by the 'GTK_MODULES=pantheon-filechooser-module' env. After removing it from /etc/profile.d/pantheon-filechooser-module.sh and reboot, Chrome does not freeze when uploading a file anymore. https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=716892


If someone still have this problem - simply delete this file: pantheon-filechooser-module.sh in /etc/profile.d/ and reboot
