In the old days, I can navigate in file-roller with only single click, now I had to do a double click, anyone know if this is configurable?

Most likely it's because as of v. 2.91.91 File-Roller follows Nautilus "click policy". This however, required Nautilus gsettings schema (for the click policy) meaning Nautilus had to be present on the system. Back then (v. 3.0), File-Roller crashed on systems where Nautilus was missing (i.e. org.gnome.nautilus.preferences was not present) so the devs decided to fix the issue by falling back to double-click.
