View/Edit is riddled with problems, please allow me to view but disable editing

The ticket repo is full of issues related to view/edit where the wrong file is uploaded, problems with same-name files getting saved back to the wrong place, etc. Please do not think this is fixed... I had a server down 4 hours today because a file was written to the wrong place via FileZilla's view/edit.
The goofy async timing of when FZ notices a change can occur out of order or with unexpected delays. Even if this is not technically a "bug" it is a user interface nightmare and it is no wonder the wrong things occasionally get written to the wrong places. I love the ability to view the contents of a remote file, but the "save" thing really, truly does not always work right.
I would like to be able to set a preference to completely disable the auto-upload/saving of files I am viewing. That is:
- "View/Edit" becomes "View".
- Always view with a fresh copy to be SURE it's the correct remote file.
- Never offer to save changes back to the server.
thanks for listening!
