Nautilus annoyances - can configuration change these, if so how?

I tend to use the command line most of the time but I occasionally use
Nautilus when, for example, I'm housekeeping image files and it's
useful to be able to see the images.

However, for me, nautilus has some very annoying defaults and I'm
wondering if they can be changed, i.e. :-

    Nautilus opens a new window for every directory, this rapidly gets
    annoying with deep hierarchies.  Is there an option to get
    Nautilus to open a new directory/folder in the *same* window?
    (Windows can do it, when using XP I always have this option set)

    When using the File - Open Location option nautilus defaults the
    location to the home directory *and* selects it so that it
    overwrites what's in the clipboard.  This is *intensely* annoying
    if you have just carefully selected the directory you want to go
    to (in another window) and have put it in the copy buffer already.
    Can I turn off the auto-entry of the home directory and/or the
    automatic selection of the text?
