Bug Description

When opening a filesystem using the sidebar icon, you can't open the same window again pressing the same icon.
If I click, for example, in File Manager, a window is opened, an arrow appears next to the icon. Then, I can open the same window clicking on it again. But if I do the same in a Filesystem (eg: '15 Gb filesystem'), there's no arrow, and clicking on it again opens another window.

This is an usability problem; a user might click on that, navigate the filesystem on that window, and open another application above the previous window. Then, he wants to see the first window again. He will be confused if clicking on the icon again opens a new window, instead of showing him the previous one where he was navigating.

This is inconsistent with the rest of the icons, and some users might have trouble to find how to get to the window they where using previously.
