Description

I ran an automated update and now have version 3.2.3.1, build date 2009-03-25, I have a PC with XP.

I try to "Quick Connect" and two lines show up int the uppermost window followed by "...." and nothing else happens. A click anywhere is followed by the hourglass cursor and the program in "not responding" mode. I have to force the program to quit.

Same issue three times in a row. I finally clicked the "Help" menu first to eventually get to posting this bug report.... I don't have any other reports to attach...

Can I have the previous version back, please?

Which version did you update from?

Are you using any firewalls? They are universally broken, uninstall them.

Replying to codesquid:

I had installed new from your site approx. 3-4 weeks ago - so whatever version that was. This version over-wrote the previous, so how can I get better info?

I have McAfee. Why would the firewall be broken? Why does FileZilla break the firewall to the point that I have to uninstall them? Why did previous version not have this problem, but this one does and you want to blame the firewall?

Restart solved the problem. I suggest that the code include a message box to instruct the user that a restart is necessary for the changes to be activated.

After restart, had to allow access through firewall again (no big deal and an uninstall was not needed).

Reboots are not required.

And before the restart the firewall was most likely freezing FileZilla.

Oh and regarding firewalls: Do you allow your browser to access the internet? If so, your firewall is useless. Any malware could just invoke your browser to talk to its master. Firewalls are nothing but snakeoil.
