Nextcloud version (eg, 12.0.2): 18.0.2
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 17.04): ubuntu server 18.04.4
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): NGinx 1.17.4
PHP version (eg, 7.1): 7.3

The issue you are facing: The three-dot menue or rightclick menue does not show “Details” for several users

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. create a user (best a ldap user)
  2. let the user log in
  3. find a folder or file that has been created by another user or uploaded by the new user him/herself
  4. make a click on the Three-Dot-Menue behind the filename or foldername
  5. see which options you are getting
  6. control if all needed options are offered
  7. in my case “details” is often missing
  8. stay in the folder or subfolder and make a F5 or Strg+F5
  9. control a second time which options are now be offered (in my reproducable cases) the option “details” comes back again
  10. leave the folder / subfolder and re-enter the section you leaved
  11. control again which options are offered in the three-dots-menue
  12. mostly again “details” is missing until again pressing F5 or Strg+F5

The users rights are sufficient for all folders or subfolders that have the problem.
I cleared the browser cache several times. Using mozilla firefox under ubuntu desktop for testing.

I disabled the rightclick menue app by admin account to watch what is different.
Difference is that with enabled rightclick app i see “details” in the rightclick-menue reproducable but if clicking on details the details page does not appear!

With enabled rightclick-menue i see the option “share-folder” or “share-file” but nothing happen when clicking on it!
Same here after F5 or Strg+F5 i see the “details” option again also in the rightclick-menue and can enter the details section.

without “details”

with “details”

Update: i installed chromium via software store as snap package

chromium version = 80.0.3987.87

Same here. Folders don’t show “details” until one time F5 / Strg+F5 is enforced.
