Unable to Refresh Remote Directory Listing

Reported by: clockwerx Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: clockwerx, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


A user is unable to manually refresh a directory
listing on a remote server.

  1. Connect to an FTP server
  2. Navigate to a directory.
  3. On the FTP server (externally to filezilla), modify

the directory you are looking at.

Expected Result:
A context menu item allows me to re-request a directory

Actual Result:
There is no way to refresh the directory listing, I
have to disconnect from the server and reconnect.

A right click context menu item to refresh directory
contents; similar to windows' file explorer context
menus and web browsers.

See uploaded image: this is a usability bug.

I cannot discover the action because it's located miles away
from the object I'm trying to manipulate.

Right clicking to access a context menu "refresh" is a
fairly reasonable action.

That icon refreshes all views.
I just want to refresh the server view.
