Title: Issue with file deletion behavior in Ubuntu 23.04 x86_64

I am currently using Ubuntu 23.04 x86_64, and I have noticed a recent change in the way files are handled when I delete them. Previously, deleted files would simply disappear from the folder, but now they are moved to the end of the folder and subsequently sent to the trash when I refresh. This behavior was not present before.

However, the more concerning issue is that every time I delete a file, it is moved to the end of the folder and selected. As a result, I have to locate the next file after the one I deleted.

I regularly delete a large number of files, and this new behavior disrupts my workflow as it shifts my selection focus to the last deleted file, which is quite annoying.

I would appreciate it if someone could help me understand why this is happening and provide guidance on how to fix it.

Thank you.

Cannot reproduce this (but then I am currently on Fedora with Files 44.2.1 (please include version of files in your question). Files was overhauled with the move to GTK4, so this certainly may be (one of the) bug(s). I found a file selection would after a while disappear or change when returning to an open Files window.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
