Can't open folder


Hello! I can’t open folder in my project, I see the spinning circle, but nothing happens. Also I can open it in terminal and opened folders appears in my project, but after restart they disappear again. Sorry for my bad english.


Could you post a screenshot of this so I can understand it better? Is this in a hosted workspace or an SSH workspace? Also, is there an FTP mount involved?

#3 == screenshot. This is hosted workplace without ftp, i clone it from github.


Did you resolve this issue? I’m experiencing the same.


this can happen if the permissions on the folder are wrong.
try running ls -lad /path/to/broken/folder to check


drwxr-xr-x 2 ubuntu ubuntu 4096 Jan 19 17:30

my permissions look ok I believe. If not, can you help me see what is wrong?
thank you.


Did anyone solve this?

I have the same problem. If I try to open the folder in the IDE its spinning and after spinning it shows nothing. If I go through the terminal my files are inside the folder. Restarting the IDE does not help.

Permissions are drwxr-xr-x 2 ubuntu ubuntu 4096 Aug 9 14:12 ads/


are there any errors in browser console? Sometimes adblockers can mistakenly block requests from cloud9, try disabling all browser extension, or opening the ide in an incognito window to see if that’s the case here.


Thanks a lot, that was the problem!
