There's an option in gconf I believe


Yes, once I realized I hadn't selected gconf-editor for installation, installed it with yum, found my way through the XML tree, and checked the box, browser mode is now default on my FC6T3 system.

However, I think it is a serious omission to not have this as a selection in the nautilus Edit > Preferences > Behavior tab as it is in FC5 and as I believe it was in FC6T2 - too late to check since I overwrote it with FC6T3.

The first harm this omission will cause is create another round of argument about spatial mode being forced on people who do not like it. I do like spatial mode for some uses, but after using it as default for more than a year, I recently decided that browser mode was more useful to me.

Do I need to report this as a bug against nautilus?



I'll answer myself. This checkbox most likely requires that gconf-editor be installed. It makes sense that it is so. The checkbox now appears in the Behavior tab after installing gconf-editor.
