It looks as though this was a deliberate feature removal by upstream,
back in 2012 (<https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=676842>; see
also <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=676531>).

I can see that #676531 undermines the reasoning given for #676842, but
Debian maintainers shouldn't normally revert design changes that were
done deliberately by upstream; the more we diverge from upstream on
things that are a matter of opinion, the less time we'll have available
to fix functional bugs.

If you would like similar functionality to come back, please talk to the
upstream maintainers of nautilus, via GNOME's bugzilla. I'm not going to
forward this upstream myself, because as someone who wants this feature,
you can presumably explain why you want it much more persuasively than I
