My issue happens when I use Nautilus in list view. When an item is already selected with an extra rectangle showing around the text, double clicking on it will often just remove that rectangle around the text instead of opening the item.
It happens on Ubuntu 20.04 and in Debian 10.06 Gnome.
How to reproduce
- open Nautilus
- select list view
- select item with the mouse
- change selected item with the keyboard arrows (a rectangle should show around the text of the selected item)
- activate selected item with a double click
- if it everything works normally, try again
It can be very annoying when working a lot in the file manager.
Please let me know if you have the same issue or if something similar has been reported yet. (I hope I am posting in the correct place.)
