After going through several already-answered questions on AskUbuntu and Unix's stackexchange, Firefox's "Open containing folder" option (when a file is downloaded) still opens folder in Thunar File Manager, even though my default file manager is Nautilus. (However, it's Nautilus that's opened when prompted to save a file, for example, meaning, I guess, that Firefox is somehow aware that Nautilus exists.) I'm on XFCE (Ubuntu 22) so I can't uninstall Thunar without causing core problems (already tried that).
Nautilus (under the name Files) is set a default File Manager. In the GUI of my "Applications by default" app, inode/directory and inode/mount-point are set to Files.
I've tried to modify every
mimeinfo.cache files possible, every single one of them has the following line:
(Some of them have also
[Default Applications] on the line before)
mimeinfo.cache that has "Catfish" and "Thunar" after Nautilus. But removing mention of Thunar with sudo doesn't change anything.
I also updated
/usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.FileManager1.service according to suggestions, that didn't change anything.
I've closed/reopened my user session, also restarted my computer, nothing changed.
What have I missed?
