#8349 new Bug report

show splash screen at startup (Long delay on startup using local network drive)

Reported by: Jorj Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: startup delay Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Win7


When the local site remembered on startup is a network file share containing thousands of sub-directories, the FileZilla client takes about 5 minutes to appear.

This delay with no splash screen or progress indicator would typically lead the user to try again repeatedly, as if the launch did not execute. (There was no visual feedback of any sort.)

This symptom suggests inefficiency reading large numbers of filesystem objects. Perhaps it should be limited by default?

At least the operation should indicate some sort of progress. Preferably interruptible by user ("Cancel" button).

An instantaneous Splash Screen would help mitigate the confusion.

Similar delay occurs also when navigating to said directories after startup.
