Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

There is no way to open Nautilus home directory directly. I can open other places and than move to $HOME but that is not ideal solution.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Click on "files and folders" from the Unity dock
2. search for Nautilus

Another way:
1. Click on the Ubuntu icon on the top left of screen
2. Click on "Find Files"

Neither will open your $HOME directory. Using the 2nd option does not work at all. Clicking on the Ubuntu icon than clicking on "Find Files" will not open anything at all.

What i expect:
I expect to be able to open my $HOME directory directly since most things if not everything is used more than any other directory for the most part. You do most editing in $HOME so it only makes sense to be able to open it.

Any more info needed please let me know
I am attaching a screen-shot.
