The workaround of changing Edit > Preferences > Advanced > ui/application/useNativeDialog helped once again in https://musescore.org/en/node/306304

Not too sure this really is a MuseScore issue. But maybe we'd need to go back to have that setting being different for Linux vs Mac and Windowes, like we used to have

Regression No Yes

I didn't really find time to investigate it, but by checking it in short with MuseScore 2.3.2 it seems to change the file extension correct by default, as both for "save as..." and "export..." by changing the file format, not so with MuseScore 3.x. So maybe it's an active bug?

The change is in the default setting for ui/application/useNativeDialog on Linux, which was different from the other platforms in 2.x but is the same in 3.x

After some more investigation, I don't really get it. If I'm not wrong, indeed it works correct with the AppImage of MS 3.4.2 - also with versions before - by default (useNativeDialog is activated) but not with the AppImage of MS 3.5 (it works by deactivating this setting).
But it also doesn't work with the distribution package of MS 3.4.2 by default (only by deactivating this setting). Crazy.
FWIW the distribution package is using QT 5.9.7, the AppImages of 3.4.2 and 3.5 both QT 5.9.8, so it doesn't seems to be a QT bug. OS is OpenSuse.
I wonder, if a missing library somewhere could be the reason (for both: inside the AppImage and OS)?
