Dear David, this happens because Firefox is written using GTK, while
you are used to the rest of KDE which is
written the better looking QT. so firefox uses a GNOME-like file
chooser menu which doesn't contain thumnails.
this has been recently discussed on the list, and Dotan Cohen filed a
bug on Launchpad about it. i can't remember the link, but will post it
here when i find it. so far, it seems like they are with the idea, but
it's too early to know, but if all goes well, the bug will be assigned
to jaunty jackalope, and the feature will appear in kubuntu 9.04.
