Icon view for file browser inside firefox?

My question is simple yet hard to explain so I'll do my best.

Within firefox, if I click a link to upload a file(ex on facebook to upload a photo), it brings up a file browser for me to browse files. By default this is in a list view as opposed to an icon view. I would like it to be in an iconic view but I haven't found anywhere to make this change. Nautilus is set by default to open in iconic view and even has a button to change views easily. But the file browser within firefox has no such button.

Is the browser that firefox opens nautilus or a different one? Would this be something tweaked within firefox or within gnome?

I took a nice screenshot and marked it up and everything to illustrate my point but apparently I lack the karma upload files. Anyone have any idea on this one or am I just out of luck? Thanks!
