Bug Description

Right-click on a folder sitting on your Desktop, and the first two contextual menu entries are "Open" and "Browse folder". They appear to do the exact same thing. "Browse folder" should be removed.

Oliver, the options you cite on the Filesystem and Trash context menus are disabled. Perhaps you are clicking on Launchers (shortcuts) for those items on your desktop?
