When you register a custom active tool, that has a popover panel with a filepath property the folder icon won't open the filebrowser. It does work when it's just in the toolbar, but not in the panel.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Run the script
  • Select the active tool
  • Open the popover panel
  • Try opening the filebrowser by clicking the folder icon
