Hi Kipin,

I am using Gtk port and a quick solution would be,

open WebKit/gtk/WebCoreSupport/ChromeClientGtk.cpp and in function

void ChromeClient::runOpenPanel(Frame*, PassRefPtr<FileChooser> prpFileChooser)

simply add return in the begining. I know this is not correct but you
can try with this.

But if your problem is only about restricting access from root, then
in filechooser dialog i think you can restrict it with some option. So
instead off disabling it you can restrict to access let say only
"/opt" directory.
