#1025 closed Bug report

FileZilla main dialog does not appear

FileZilla client 2.2.18

I know I reported this before, but I think my bug
report was closed without being addressed :(

I just experienced it again, and now I have a good
guess what causes this bug.

I think this is due to the same problem that causes
FileZilla to be painful to use on network drives -- it
slows to a crawl if network drives are involved.

My guess is that last time I ran FileZilla, the last
drive I used was a network drive, so now it is in some
stupid, painful loop trying to read a network drive,
and therefore the main window is never appearing.

I guess if that is true, the solution would be to hunt
down the recent settings memory (registry?) and kill
them, to fix this.

Yes, the workaround for this bug is

a) Kill FileZilla.exe with Task Manager
b) edit your settings and change the "Default Folder" setting

It's a problem with Windows, it's networking implementation
is terrible.

Ya, it is terrible -- no chance of fixing this terrible bug
at all?

Even a partial fix like a checkbox in the options, something

Don' t Save Last Directory (recommended for anyone using

network drives)

You can set a permanent default directory in the settings

That is a much better workaround that traipsing into the
registry to delete the bad entry!
