Problem resizing winfdow in multiscreen configuration

Reported by: Daniel Owned by: ZeroCool
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Dual screen, resize, window Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: OS X
Operating system version: 10.10.2



I'm having trouble with filezilla, when I disconnect my second monitor, before I close filezilla.

After I disconnect the second monitor, I can't no longer access the bounder of the program so I can not resize the window. That let's me in an incapacity of acceding my configured connection. I can't no longer use filezilla.

Thank you.

I am assuming that one monitor has a higher resolution than the other.

If filezilla is not maximized when you remove the 2nd monitor filezilla will remain at the size it was on the previous mode. The OS, for simplicity, is the one controlling the movement of filezilla from the 2nd monitor to the 1st and filezilla has no way to detect that, at the moment.

Best thing to do, if you ware using windows 7 and later is to bring filezilla to focus then hold down the windows key(on keyboard) and press the left arrow key, this will make the application dock to the left and force it to fit the monitor.

In my case, I'm using Mac (Mavericks, though probably similar for other versions of OS X). The only work-around I can find is to use the Mission Control screen to move the FileZilla window back to the small monitor (which is logically beneath my large monitor). This leaves the FileZilla title bar visible on the large monitor, giving me access to the window's Zoom button. The fact that the problem persisted even after quitting and relaunching FileZilla was very frustrating until I found this work-around.

I'm having this problem too but multi-monitor behaviour has changed since Yosemite, meaning the title bar is no longer visible on the large screen.
In my case I'm using two external monitors and indeed these have a bigger resolution than my laptop screen (which is the whole point of using them).
