    Downloaded Spreadsheet Not Opening from /tmp

    Hi
    On a web page, I select link for spreadsheet and get a choice from Firefox
    Open with (LibreOffice Calc) or
    Save File
    Selecting Open with ...
    starts LibreOffice but generates an error window with the message:
    /tmp/mozilla_scott0/valuation.csv does not exist

    Using Nautilus to open /tmp/mozilla_scott0/
    shows the file is there but trying to open it gives the same error
    Using the Terminal to look at the file permssions suggests I own the file and have permission to read it:
    scott@SBdesk:/tmp$
    Code:
    ls -l /tmp/mozilla_scott0
    Outputs:

    -r-------- 1 scott scott 1983 Nov 8 08:02 valuation.csv
    scott@SBdesk:/tmp$

    I can copy the file to the desktop and open it with LibreCalc

    It looks like I own and have R/W privileges for the directory where the file is.
    scott@SBdesk:/tmp$
    Code:
     ls -l /tmp
    Outputs:
    drwx------ 2 scott scott 4096 Nov 8 08:04 mozilla_scott0

    Using a new install of Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS, Firefox 70.0.1(64bit)

    Any insights would be appreciated - Thanks in advance - scott
