Hi
Thank you for reading my post
I tried to force Nautilus to shows all of my ~/ contents, files like .mozilla or .bashrc or other hidden files but it does not show them?
I Checked "Show Hidden and Backup files" option in prefrences but it does not have any effect

Any solution?

Thanks

Open nautilus and press <CTRL> + H. It should stay that way (even next time you open nautilus) until you press <CTRL> + H again.

Or open Nautilus and go to Edit -> Preferences | and put a check in the box next to "Show hidden and backup files"
