Disable "show in download folder"

I have a need to use regular browser (not kiosk), but disable the "open downloads folder" once a file has been downloaded. This is opening a file manager (thunar or alike) which then allows the user to browse the filesystem and open a terminal emulator from /usr/bin.

Using the policies, I am able to prompt for downloads, or select a download location, however I have been unable to completely stop the user from opening the download folder which opens a file browser.

Is there any way I can select policies or profile options for disabling the option for opening download folder?

OK, one more hurdle...

I like the approach on the solution and it seem easy to implement. We however keep a cleanse of the profile on firefox restart to sanitize. This means that I have a new profile on each opening of the browser.

I can add easily enough the bits to enable toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stilesheets in /usr/lib/firefox/defaults/pref/somefile.js however, I am having issues porting the userChrome.css since it is supposed to go inside the profile. Do you have any alternative on how to manage this as a policy/global pref?
