In Ubuntu 18.04, When I use the shortcut for opening a new Nautilus window (CTRL + N), I'm getting an error:

This location could not be displayed
Sorry, could not display all the contents of "x-nautilus-desktop:///": The specified location is not supported

Below is a link to the image. I'm not allowed to embed images yet, too noob.
This is my first post! :)

All locations work fine after clicking "OK" in the error window, but every time I open my first Nautilus window, I always get that same error...and it's killing my flow.

I also tried running Ubuntu from the Bootable install USB and get the same error. I had no problems with the prior stable release, Unity. I'm running on a 2011 Macbook Air, by the way.

Is there a setting I can change to make that error go away?
