Three Nautilus questions

1. With XP I used a shell extension to let me select a folder in windows explorer, right click on it and choose "open window here". It would open a console window at that location. I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 RC. How do I do the same thing for Nautilus?

2. When I search for a file using Nautilus the search results don't indicate the locations. If I have multiple files with the same name I have to right click and look at properties on each file to find where its stored. Is there some way to make it display the location? I couldn't find a preference or a package to do that.

3. I have a profiles directory, with subdirectories for Firefox, Thunderbird etc. If I search for Thunderbird it returns every single file in the Thunderbird subdirectory, none of whom had that string as part of their name, and many of which don't have that string in the file. However, it doesn't return the actual Thunderbird subdirectory. Is there any way to make it return only the actual file/subdirectory with that name?
