#5438 new Bug report

View/Edit stops working

Reported by: Jean-Sébastien Gervais Owned by:
Priority: low Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows XP SP3 / FZ version 3.3.3


View/Edit menu item from the context menu on a remote file stops working on the second attempt on the same file, if currently openned localy.

Step to reproduce :

1 - Select a remote .csv file and View/Edit from the context menu;
2 - while the file is still open, try to view/edit again the same remote file
3 - On the prompt that warns you that file is openned, select the second option «Delete local file and download again» + Ok. Another warning shows up.
4 - close the local file.
5 - View/Edit again on the same remote file. Nothing open, nothing download. And no prompts.

other useful info :

  • View/Edit however still works on other files.
  • I couldn't reproduce this issue using .txt files and notepad or ultraedit; seems like a file exclusive access issue not being reset properly.
  • Remote server is unix RHEL4, using vsftpd
  • client's server detection is automatic, transfer type automatic;

Restarting Filezilla fixes the issue, so it's little to deal with. However, less technical users might have an harder time figuring out what's going on.

Keep up the good work !
