Disclaimer: I am not asking for help. I am describing something I
encountered which in my opinion is overly restrictive.
I'm running the latest rawhide-xo .img on my XO. I had manually
installed Browse-108. Happened to access a webpage which showed me
an 'entry field', into which I intended to enter the URI of a file
on the XO -- then that file would be uploaded by the website.
But as soon as I moved the cursor to that 'entry field' (and clicked
to cause future keyed-in characters to be directed to that field),
the Sugar 'Object Chooser' popped up, asking me to select something
__from the Journal__. I did not want to supply anything from the
Journal -- I wanted to supply the filename of some data in directory
/home/liveuser. I could *not* get past the 'Object Chooser'.
I resolved this impasse by abandoning the use of 'Browse', and
instead accessed that page from my XO with 'Opera' -- then it all
worked the way that I was expecting it to.
In my opinion, forcing me to use 'Object Chooser' was upsetting.
