Hi
Is there a way to get thumbnails in the gnome file chooser? (opening and closing files from firefox)
I've googled this a bit but only find posts circa 2006-2008

Has it been fixed and I'm missing it some how?

Would also like to be able to add columns, ie. "Type", to the list view.

Thanks
Dave

I have thumbnails here.

Make sure you are using the system file picker and not the one built-in Firefox by setting the preference ui.allow_platform_file_picker to true.

You can find instructions on how to do that at http://firefox-tutorials.blogspot.com/2010/05/preferences-tweaks.html

If that doesn't help, then check Nautilus preview settings.
