Please see the screenshot of the Open dialog at https://bug-attachments.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=126551

Answer quickly: which icon, when clicked, goes to the parent folder?

In several months of LO usage, it has never occurred to me to click the folder + down arrow icon, because I had never seen that in any other app, and I was looking for a sort of up arrow icon, or a path breadcrumb that lets you click on an arbitrary parent of the current directory.

Indeed, it's not so recognizable IMO

thanks for your report

This only happens in the breeze icon theme and its child themes (sifr).

how can I see this dialog? on MS and KDE I can't see it how I have to change the configure to test it?

I will close this bug cause I get no feedback.
Comment 5 andreas_k 2019-04-24 23:19:27 UTC
the open dialog is not available via Tools > Options > General > Open/Save Dialogs, so I think it was removed.
