The issue you are facing:

Compared to v24, context menus for folders (create new file, etc) is no longer shown when clicking on the “+” icon!

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y (well, no, but It took me a while to decide to report it)

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Go to Files

  2. Click on the “+” icon next to the path

  3. Hit the button

Expected behavior from v24:

Observed behavior: nothing happens

I know it’s some time since the question was asked and you probably solved it already, but since I ended up here while Googling I guess someone else might as well.
The issue reported is created by the “transfer-app” deactivating it solves the issue.
the app tries to attach an observer to the new file menu by selecting it through the id #control which was valid in v.24 but in v.25 there is no element with id #control. And therefore it fails.

Same here with app “Transfer”. What a pity. I like the app “Transfer” but i can not use it.
