Remove file name filters from avatar file chooser

There are a few issues with filtering by the file name extension:

  formats work as well
- on GNU/Linux, the file extension does not dictate the file type;
  you can rename a .svg to .jpg and it will still work correctly
- many file types have multiple extension names, eg: .jpeg or .JPG

There is also no need to filter by the name, because if the file
type is not supported, it will simply  not work if the user tries
selecting it as the avatar image and a simple warning will be
