#11482 reopened Bug report

Directory tree is clumsy to browse

Description

If I have a slow connection to server, browsing the directory tree is very troublesome. If I want to go to certain path I already know, I need to wait every parent directory to load first so that I can expand their children. So I need to click twice and wait between. Usually this is avoided by allowing expanding unknown directory. After the directory has been loaded arrow can be hidden.

Browsing is also clumsy when I sometimes click wrong directory accidentally. Then I need to wait it to load before I can open the directory which I wanted. The previous directory retrieving should be cancelled if user changes directory during the operation.

With these changes browsing would be way faster also with a slow connection.

You can manually enter the full path in the remote path edit box.

I don’t think that’s a solution. I rarely remember full path 100%. It doesn’t even have autocomplete. My suggestions are easy to implement and at least for me obvious to exist so you could do some work to make FileZilla more usable. With slow connection it’s very troublesome to use.
