FC3's Firefox "GTK+ file chooser" begone!

Fedora's implementation of Firefox comes with a so-called "GTK+ file chooser" (also known as a Save-As dialog box). Now, getting into a flame war about GNOME vs. KDE would be rather useless, and it's great for GNOME afficianados that Firefox feels more like a native GNOME app, etc, etc, etc...

Except for us KDE folks. This "file chooser" dialog truly annoys me. I want Firefox's default back, or at least the freedom to choose (I may email its creator and ask why us KDE folks can't have native KDE widgets in Firefox on FC3.)

So, is there any way to disable the "GTK+ file chooser" and enable the original dialog box, without uninstalling Fedora's patched Firefox and installing a stock Firefox binary?

Never mind, too much trouble.
# yum remove firefox
# cd ~/downloads/firefox-1.0.1-installer/
# ./firefox-installer
End of annoyance.

Exactly what I did. I tried everything as well and in the end, uninstalled and reinstalled directly from Mozilla.
