You are just bringing back the complaints about double-click.

There is no winning here, and I will not support any simple reversal
unless it comes along with a person who is willing to maintain the
filechooser long-term, and field all the complaints from the 'its still
not the same as nautilus' crowd.

The fact that the "Look and Feel" of the filechooser agrees with that of Nautilus is a Feature, not a Bug. It is utterly nonsensical to even thing of changing it, and if Ubuntu and Suse are reversing the change on their platforms, then I applaud that.

It seems to me that those who are developing GTK are answerable to no-one, and it they continue to behave in this way, we shall simply all be forced to switch to QT. It is ridiculous that they are pressing ahead with GTK4 at a time when several exceeding important applications had not even switched to GTK3 (and I am beginning to see why). The file changer in these applications will remain as it is, so that everyone will find different windows which look the same behaving entirely differently.
