Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs#When%20not%20to%20file%20a%20bug.

first go to places then click computer,
open file system, then home,
then right click on any of the folder i.e. video, template, music or any one,
now choose the option "open with other application"
choose "file browser" & tick on "remember this application"
and click "open"
now you may open your places correctly.
