Summary0002049: Cannot navigate into any folder in the open dialog unless it has an ".inform" extension
DescriptionWhen I do File -> Open or press the open existing project button on the splash screen, I get a file chooser dialog.

However, I can't actually go inside any folders; all the folders in the listing in the main part of the file chooser are grayed out and disabled. The preset folders on the left side of the file chooser (like my home directory, or the desktop) can be selected, and I get the list of all the subfolders in the main part of the dialog, but I can't navigate into any of them, because they are disabled.

I suspect this has something to do with the code that tells it to only let me pick *.inform folders as projects to open. Indeed, if I name a folder something like "a.inform" and put it on my desktop, then when I pick Desktop on the left side of the filechooser the "a.inform" folder in the list is not disabled and I can navigate inside of it.
Additional InformationI am running Ubuntu 16.04 with its default Gnome Shell desktop.

Seems to be a duplicate. How strange; could be a regression in the GTK file dialog. I seem to remember it didn't have this problem before, and, well, as you know, Inform's code hasn't changed in 3 years :-)
