I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 16.04 to 20.04, and there are so many issues that negatively impact my productivity. Most of them are related to nautilus.

In Chrome, when I navigate to a path for uploading (or saving) files, the path is lost when I upload the next file. I have to navigate again to the same folder for each file I select.

How can I make the file dialog remember the last path used? This should be the default whenever uploading or saving a file - it should just continue from where I was the last time I saved/uploaded a file. I am not looking for workarounds, as suggested in other topics (such as copying the path or creating bookmarks).

    Couldn't agree more. Who in their right mind decided to change this? If it ain't broke don't fix.
