How can I kill the collapsible context menu in Thunar?

I'm not sure what that *feature* is called, but I've searched in Thunar prefs, Settings and in ~/.config as well as around here on the Forum and with a web search. What I'm trying to describe is when the context menu shrinks to a few items which, following Murphy's Law, routinely does not include the one I'm needing ATM (usually Open Terminal Here).

I fear this will call for yet another gtk3 code snippet, but am hoping there is a simpler solution that I'm just not seeing.

TIA

Jerry, are you talking about the bug where there are scroll arrows on the top and bottom of the context menu and only a subset of all items are displayed? Clicking on the arrows then scrolls the list to show them all.

Sounds like it. So it's a bug, will have to look that up. I hope the Devs focus on users next round, and add a simple check box to the preferences.

Here is the bug report. It's been fixed in recent versions of Thunar.

Thanks. We're running 1.8.9 ATM, so we'll consider going up.

Just to finish this up: we have it packaged (as a deb) and in the MX Test repo now for, well, testing.

It looks much better at first glance, so glad to know about it.
