Nautilus - stop opening new windows

Nautilus on Fedora has an annoying habit of opening new windows every time you double click on a directory. This is enough to drive any one mad, but there is a solution.

Under the edit menu select preferences. On the behaviour tab click the 'Always open in browser windows'. Not particularly intuitive.

Thanks to Lars E. Pettersson for this tip! Now, Nautilus behaves sensibly and we have access to the directory tree.
