Ubuntu – Path bar missing in file dialog after running software updater for Ubuntu 17.04


After running software updater, the path bar in the file dialog (for example the one you get when choosing Open File in in Google Chrome or Firefox) is missing. This is frustrating since it's no longer possible to copy a path from the terminal (for example) and paste it into the file dialog. Here is a screenshot of the dialog:

How can I get back the path bar?

That's something called the breadcrumb bar/view, you can switch to the classic view by hitting Ctrl+L.
