File Open not finding/displaying a file

Hi! Using Classic (6.0.629.0-w 18-Feb-2021), on the Web, in Chrome (Version 88.0.4324.192), on a Mac (MacOS 11.1 "Big Sur"), File Open only displays 30 of my files, I can't/don't know how to get it to load more (I searched the Manual, found the doc about Open, but it gives absolutely minimal info, and at the bottom of the page, it says that it's for GeoGebra Version 5.0; I tried unsuccessfully to find the Manual for Version 6), and searching for the file--I know its name--doesn't bring it up (indeed, search isn't even bringing up any of my files with a partial match, even though the default 30 it shows without searching all match my partial search). Is there a save limit of 30 files I didn't know about, i.e., have I been writing over older files, without warning, each time I save a new file? (I thought that as long as we share our files, i.e., don't make them private, we have unlimited free storage; or did that policy change at some point?) If there isn't such a limit, in which case I should have many, many more than 30 files saved, how do I get Open to to show me more of my files. And regardless, how do I get Open's search to find my files (again, the default display is showing me files which "disappear" when I type into search a partial match)? Finally, how do I specify that when I want to look at the manual, I want to look at the version for GeoGebra Version 6, not 5? Thanks!

Yes, thank you, and I see the URL I have to use to, efficiently, see them all; however: a) can I get File->Open to show me this? and b) how come File->Open->Search, using several different search terms, all of which "should," one would think, show me these, doesn't? Do I have to go to /u/olydlg to find my older files? Thanks!

For now, yes. The search will be fixed soon!

Oh, so this is an issue, and it is a known issue. OK, GTK.

Oh, and how do I specify that I want to see the version 6 Manual?

All the tutorials are here https://www.geogebra.org/a/14 and if you are using v.6 classic, you can get access to the manual by selecting Help in the context menu displayed when you press the + at the beginning of an input line in Algebra View

Version 5 and 6 have the same tools and commands. The online wiki may have screenshots related to v.5 but the syntaxes and tools uses are the same

Is there a "one stop shop" to read all the changes from 5 to 6, then? If all the tools and commands are the same, what changed?

The interface changed, and is the same online and offline for version 6. Version 5 is a standalone one, which can be installed only locally on your computer, while version 6 is available for computers, phones and tablets. Version 6 has a better rendering of expressions in Algebra View, and a different engine for rendering 3D graphs that bypasses some issues with older drivers of the GPUs.
