The file is not supposed to be opened. It is supposed to be highlighted (selected) in the file manager. Last I checked, thunar cannot do that. If thunar's behaviour has changed since I checked it, please let me know which version made the change.

Ah, I see. By from user perspective it's more useful to open file then only select it in the file browser, don't you think?

Alternatively, I could prepare a new merge request add new menu item: "Preview" next to "Open in File Browser..."

I usually want to preview the file before downloading.

What do you think?

It would be much better to preview the image in the application itself by double clicking on the thumbnail. It's been on the TODO list for a long time, but is a low priority compared to other tasks. It has not been written.

Yes, agree but on the other hand, it's better to have a working preview with an external program than nothing, especially if it's a low priority task.

The change could be done incrementally:
- add external preview right now
- when internal preview is ready: add new "default preview mode" setting: external or internal.
