#3377 closed Bug report

OS X: File change notification hidden behind main window

Reported by: phluisma Owned by: Tim Kosse
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: phluisma, Tim Kosse, Alexander Schuch
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


I am using leopard mac osx,
when i edit a file from the FTP (with my editor),
i close the file, save it, and I return to FZILLA window, then I can see the main window, but I can not get the windos that says..... changes, upload the file....
because it can not get the focus, but main window neither, so i have to kill the fzilla.

I think it is a problem with the interface.
it's not developed thinking in leopard.

I run leopard in an macbook 2,2ghz(core duo intel)
and I can see in the about, that fzilla is compilled for powerpc platform, perhaps that's the problem.

Which version of FileZilla 3 are you using? The latest?

I cannot verify this problem on Tiger (I don't have Leopard).

I can see in the about, that fzilla is compilled for powerpc platform

Try downloading the intel Package instead of the powerpc one.

This problem happens with FileZilla 3.0.6 Intel Edition as well - I will add version of MacOS X later on.

While trying to reproduce it, we came up with the following:

  • view/wdit a remote file
  • editor opens
  • do some changes and save the file
  • click on the FileZilla window(*)
  • after a few seconds, the dialog to upload changed file appears

Now, if instead of clicking the FileZilla window, we use Alt+Tab (or whatever the shortcut is for switching application windows), FileZilla application gets the focus, but the modal dialog seems to appear behind the FileZilla application with no way to get it to the front.
