I use a Mac, although the company LAN is Windows-based. There are several shared servers on the LAN, one of which contains our local site.
If I have not previously connected to the local server from Finder, Synchronized Browsing will fail in FileZilla. What I mean by fail is - when I open the Site Manager, select a bookmarked folder within the site, and click "Connect", the remote site's files are shown on the right, but the local site file path on the left remains stuck at the Mac's home folder.
The only way to prevent this is to manually connect to the local site server by navigating to one of its folders in Finder first, before attempting to connect with FileZilla. It seems that FileZilla is unable to initiate a connection, only look for an existing connection. And no user feedback is given to indicate when connection to the local site server is unsuccessful or why.
