Thanks for bugreport. What kind of desktop environment do you have? which app the command:
xdg-open file:///home/
Please check content of this directory:
and try to find custom application handler for opening directories.
Thank you.

I'am running on XFCE.

This was the content of directory:
userapp-Composizione dati-7LRH2X.desktop

that I've deleted. Than I closed/restarted session but the problem is the same.
Also logging with another user has the same problem.  

> Thank you.

Hm, this looks fine, please try also:
xdg-mime query default inode/directory
Thank you.

Hi, this is the output:

Comment 5 Jan Horak 2015-11-10 07:10:15 EST
This seems to be also okay, I've got another command for you:
python -c 'import gtk;gtk.show_uri(None, "file:///", 0)'
you need to have pygtk2 package installed to be able to perform it. It should open default application for inode/directory content type.
Comment 6 luigi votta 2015-11-10 09:24:50 EST
It opens nothing (visible), but in background it starts  

/usr/bin/baobab --gapplication-service

that exits after few seconds.

For reference, in bug 1234319 [1] Jaromir found similar  bug for Ubuntu [2]
and also upstream bug is there [3].

It seems that nautilus is probably not installed (is it?) and g_app_info_launch_default_for_uri (which firefox use to open directory) fallbacks to mimeinfo.cache and search for inode/directory entry and firs app which support inode/directory is baobab.
Comment 9 John Ellson 2015-12-17 13:38:17 EST
Same problem on mate desktop on fedora-23.

   $ rpm -q nautilus baobab

Uninstalling baobab fixes the issue so that I can get a nautilus folder window for Places-> Home Folder
