no "open with..." in context menu of folders anymore

Bug #1183390 reported by Jan Schürmann on 2013-05-23
This bug affects 5 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
nautilus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

in Nautilus 3.4, if i right-click a folder with i.e. media files, the
context menu shows the option to "open with..." or even directly shows
the correct application for the content of that folder.
Nautilus 3.6 doesn't have this option anymore.
this is a big regression and a usability issue.
