To navigate to a folder I often press Command+Shift+G (a shortcut that has worked from NeXT days) and type where I want to navigate to. Starting with one of the updates to Big Sur (I'm still at macOS 11.6.5) the Go to the folder panel appears, is functional (even auto completes correctly), but when I hit Go (or the Return key), Finder fails to navigate to the requested folder whenever it is under Documents. In that case it navigates me to my system drive (MacHD in my case). It seems like a permissions problem, but upon running
ls -le on the directory, nothing stands out to me.
How do I regain the functionality once available through Command-Shift-G? Do others have this issue? Is it a problem in Monterey?
