Seems to me that's another example of poor behaviour by a fuse-daemon. The 
permissions should be set to at least X and R for users other than the one who 
mounted the dir. If, as the current user, you don't have X for a directory, 
then it should be that you can't get into that directory with emelFM2 or 
anything else. And R is needed to show its contents.

What happens when you (as super-user or the relevant user) change mounted dir 
permissions before trying to display its contents ?

This is a bug, apparently a flag which prevents re-entrant cd's is not being 
cleared when the cd failed. And if not cleared, all subsequent cd's, and also 
filelist refreshes, will be blocked. I can't suggest a fix immediately as my 
IDE has gone AWOL.
