This is the behavior of openoffice open dialog, which can be enabled by
checking on  "Use dialogs" from
Tools->Options->>General->Open/Save dialogs

I try on Ubuntu against 3.2,  there are also two types of open dialogs, the
same as aoo 3.4.1. That you described sounds like the operation system
provided open dialog, which can be enabled by unchecking the "Use dialogs" from
Tools->Options->>General->Open/Save dialogs

Yes, the OS provided one is much easier to be used.

But the openoffice open/save dialog is also usful.

As I know, openoffice can open a document via a URL.  Via openoffice open
dialog, you can just enter the URL into the File name field and then click
open button, the file on the remote server can be loaded into openoffice.
But if using the OS provided open dialog, how can you do this?
