Unable to get a list view in Nautilus

I am using the Fedora 23 beta and just did a fresh wipe-and-install on my laptop. I originally had upgraded using dnf but decided to do a fresh install for a variety of reasons.

When I upgraded, the Nautilus file manager maintained my preferred list view for my files. However, when I was using the fresh installation, the default choice were icons. I went into the Nautilus preferences and checked this box:

My preferences in Nautilus

However, this did not change anything, even when restarting the program and even rebooting the entire computer (the setting persisted).
