Selecting multiple attachments at once in GMail

I came across the multi-select attachments in GMail feature by accident but later found that this has been documented or rather blogcumented. You have to hold down the Ctrl key and click on each file you want to attach to your message.

However, there is a twist. This feature works in all browsers (IE, Safari, Chrome, Opera) except Firefox, the browser I normally use with GMail.

In Firefox it shows the File Upload control while in other browsers, it displays the Open dialog box to choose files.

No wonder I've been missing that feature all these days.

I find that it actually works to select multiple files as attachements in Firefox (mac version), by holding down the cmd key but only when composing a new email, not when replying. How annoying is that?!
