How to remove dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17, etc. in file path on Ubuntu?

On Ubuntu 14.04, I search for a file in PCManFM and when it returns the results, I see something like this:

dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/var/www/html/config.inc.php

/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/dev/fd/17/proc/13231/task/13231/root/var/www/html/config.inc.php

What should I do to not see this /dev/fd/17 loop in the results?

Do you want a solution that prevents PCManFM from producing results with this content, or do you want a solution to process the results and remove the unwanted content?  The second is considerably simpler.

sed 's/\/dev\/fd\/17//g' input.file > output.file

Or you can pipe the output of PCManFM through sed and achieve the same result.
