Subject: [gentoo-user] Wow, the GTK3 file browser is awful!

Having just recently allowed Firefox to upgrade from 45 to 52, I'm now
hobbled with the GTK3 file browser dialog.

It's horrible.

First of all, it's freaking _huge_!  It wastes acres of display
real-estate.  It was obviously designed by a megalomaniac who thinks
your computer belongs to him, and that while his filebrowser code is
running, nothing else must be visible.

I used to be able to just start typing a path.  Now, that triggeres
some bizzarre "search" feature that shows a spinner for a minutes at a
time shows a long list of files I don't care about.

I've discovered that hitting Ctrl-L makes it minimally functional, and
I can at least enter a path again.

I shall probably die still longing for the days of GTK2...
