RE: Open Folder Dialog doesn't appear all the time

Hi!

I also think the current behavior is not good:

 - the button has two functions: Folder browser (to select a folder
in the filesystem) and repository browser
  and the third "function": disabled

It is hard to guess which function is when active and why it
is sometimes suddenly disabled.

Also, it is disabled, when there is a valid file: URL entered,
then later, it is enabled, when the very same URL is in the text field.

Regards,
David
