When I click "Help > Open log Directory" nothing happens.

When the MonoDevelop is started as:

flatpak run com.xamarin.MonoDevelop --no-redirect

the terminal window shows following error when I click "Help > Open log Directory":

GConf Error: Failed to activate configuration server: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown
Error showing url: No application is registered as handling this file

I'm getting the same error when right-clicking on a source file tab and then click "Open Containing Folder". The file browser doesn't show up.
