[Bug 1295670] Re: Nautilus doesn't save items view


@qu9542 Thanks for the comment, I desperately hope for a solution, otherwise I will have to change to another file browser. Not sure if this works for me as the default-folder-viewer is already set to "list-view", but it does not save the items view per folder. Does it save the items view (icon or list) in your nautilus?
On my system it only shows the list view by default, but would not save the last view per folder. I don't want to have it always in the list view, some folders, e.g. pictures are nicer to view in the icon view. And when I switch from a picture folder to another folder in the same tab, I would like to have the list view for other folders, not the persisting icon view. 
But maybe this behaviour happens on your system what would be nice, but I can not reproduce it.
