#10866 moreinfo Bug report

"All files transferred succesfully" notice repeated a ridiculous number of times

Reported by: teo8976 Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc:
Component version: 3.12.02 Operating system type: Linux
Operating system version: ubuntu 15.10


Steps to reproduce:

  • upload a folder or a few folders containing a few hundred files
  • Give focus to some other application other than FileZilla

Expected result:

  • When the upload is complete, you get a notification telling you that all the files have been succesfully transferred (or not). On Ubuntu it's a rectangle on the top-right of the screen just below the notification area, which pops up and disappears after a few seconds.

Observed result:
This happens systematically with some given folders but not others, but I haven't found the pattern. The folders that reproduce the issue do so systematically, the ones that don't never do. Ths issue is:

  • when the transfer is finished, the notification pops up dozens of times, consecutively. You can see the popup vanish and reappear immediately every few seconds. In total, it can stay several minutes.

I guess that the popup is showed a number of times equal to the number of files transferred, or more probably, the number of files that satisfy certain conditions.

Please don't underestimate and the severity of this bug and lower the priority: besides being extremely annoying, if you do a few transfers of several files each, the notifications will pile up indefinitely, and if eventually you have some transfer error, it may take literally HOURS until you finally see the notification with the error.

Actually, the whole way transfer errors are managed is poorly designed, but that's another story and it will take me a while to file a complete report (or a bunch of reports) about that.

This one issue is pretty specific though.

You are using a very old version of FileZilla. Does this still happen if you update to the most recent version?

I always install all the automatic updates from Ubuntu.

Does this still happen if you update to the most recent version?

Is there a way I can enable some ppa or something so as to get a more recent version?

I'm not aware of any PPA, but you could try the official Linux binaries from the FileZilla website.
