when moving a folder the client transfers the contents of the folder in reversed order.. I have, with no luck, searched the settings trying to figure out if I had some way of fixing it, but sadly not..
I consider this to be a bug, since any normal client would take the files in the folder by alphabet.

"Changing the order to alphabetical would add considerable computing overhead when traversing large directory trees."
What's your point? This should be an option in the settings or even asked the first time you transfer something. This is an extremely irritating missing feature. Though it isn't really missing, so much as it hasn't been applied to transfer queues because when you view the files in an FTP directory, they're in order! I've used other programs that populate the queue in alphabetical order and have seen no noticeable difference in the time it takes to start downloading.
This response just sounds like laziness in implementing a proper and fast sorting algorithm. (a.k.a. QuickSort)

I agree... FlashFXP does not mix up file-order when downloading folders.
Why does FileZilla?
I am still waiting for this issue to be fixed after YEARS!
FileZilla does not make any guarantees on transfer ordering, it just uploads all the files as quickly as possible.
