open/save file dialog in firefox do not show

My son's is running vista (home premium) and firefox 3.0.5. The open file & save file dialog boxes no longer appear. When File, Open file or save page or save image is clicked on, nothing happens. I can view source, get the organize bookmarks dialog, but nothing directly related to open/saving local files. I do get the save dialog box in IE. I've uninstalled FF, deleted the profile and deleted the program file directory, reinstalled with the same result. Any way to re-enable these abilities?

Thanks

We've created a new firefox profile and just tried a new window user - still the same. Are there any Vista security settings that could cause this?

"Are there any Vista security settings that could cause this?" - no. At least not with firefox alone, about Firefox with addons, I cannot say for sure.
