FileZilla does not reconnect after ECONNABORTED

Reported by: Scott Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: 3.3.3 Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Vista


Sometimes if I click a folder, I get the message:
"Error: Disconnected from server: ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing"

Yes, I know you're never gonna fix ECONNABORTED, but there are two problems here:

  1. If I have directory sync on and click a local folder in the directory tree pane, that folder still appears selected but the folder isn't changed. This means I have to click somewhere else, then click back again to load the folder.
  2. If I hit F5 then FileZilla reconnects perfectly fine, so this should just be done automatically.

Can you please provide a screenshot for point 1?

FileZilla does not automatically spam the server with connection attempts so it does not automatically reconnect. This is on purpose.

Unable to replicate the ECONNABORTED right now, but I will take a screenshot if it happens again.

But I still don't see why FZ doesn't reconnect for ECONNABORTED. When the connection is otherwise cut (e.g. "Connection closed by server") and I press F5 or click a folder, it reconnects just fine.

Because F5 is user interaction.

If you download a queue of files, the "browse connection" is idle and will eventually be disconnected by the server. Why should FileZilla automatically reconnect if the user is doing something else (not browsing the FTP server) and waiting for the queue to finish?
