Bug Description

If I have my external hard drive open in a Nautilus window and focus a different window, clicking on "Files" opens a new Home Folder window, instead of focussing the background EHDD window.

If it is relevant, I have "Files" pinned to the sidebar. This doesn't happen if the first window is on the internal drive.

 - Open external hard drive in Nautilus window.
 - Focus/click on a non-Nautilus window
 - Click the "Files" icon in sidebar.

Expected behaviour:
 - EHDD window brought to focus

Actual behaviour:
 - New Home Folder window opened.
