FC27 Nautilus filemanager displays /boot /(root) and /home in the sidebar.


Since a couple of weeks after the upgrade to Fedora 27 the Nautilus filemanager displays in the left side-bar (Called "Places"?)those 3 volumes: boot, home and main folder of filesystem (/) all three with eject button and /home even with the Format option...
I have looked into the settings of Nautilus as well as those of GnomeTweakTool but could'nt find anything to hide these mounts.
Any help to get rid of these 3 buggers?

Okay, this is officially scary...
Paybe this page can help a bit, in the meantime, watch where you click, okay?

Edit - are you (by any slim chance) logged in as Root and using the DE?

Thank you for your replies ButterflyMelissa and syg00.
@ButterflyMelissa; I have looked into that page before starting the topic. I am not (not even by slim chance) logged in as root.
@syg00;The version of Nautilus is 3.26.2. I have attached a little partial screenshot.

I haven't been able to make mine look anything like that - so can't offer a suggestion for a fix.

I have to bump this question because the phenomenon came back last week. This time worse because a plugged-in USB device does not show in "Places" because it no longer automagically mounts. No problem with mtp it mounts and shows my phone in Places.
Update 13-02 not so much a Nautilus but a Gnome (3.26.2) problem.
When in the Gnome Tweak tool I select Desktop -> Show mounted volumes The volumes /boot /home and / (Main folder of Filesystem) these volumes show on the desktop, and they also appear in Nemo.

Added
Code:
defaults,x-gvfs-hide
to those mounts in /etc/fstab
Now everything is back to normal.
