"Open with..." right-click in Gnome freezes

asked 2015-04-09 14:25:22 -0500

When I open Files and right-click any file (e.g. a text file) and navigate to "Open with..." to choose an application to use to open this file the system freezes for some time( about minute or so). Then a submenu appears with a list of available applications. When I move mouse to the list it freezes again for the same time and only after that can I click an application (e.g. gedit) and launch the application.

What might cause these freezes? It's really annoying.

fedora 21, gnome 3.14.2
