This might be related to a thread (pcmanfm) today in the forums with
similar issues.

Suddenly after today's pkg update of gnome stuff,  firefox and
seamonkey permit browsing UNTIL one tries to save a page, it
seems, then no further interaction with the browser is permitted
until a restart.     So only 'scrot' appears useful vs the file

Notably on the  page.

Never had this happen in years and years AFAIK.

Only a slight chance it is a cache somewhere not in the usual
Cache but related to the file choose that should be cleared... or
a not-yet-rebuilt component of the browsers that implements the
file chooser dialog functionality.
