Usability: Pausing transfers / File List

It is difficult and frustrating to pause an upload /
download over a set of files.


  1. Begin a transfer with small files [ ~ 20kb each, ie,

webpages ]

  1. Scroll down
  2. Select multiple files [ more than 20 ]
  3. Pause.

Expected: Filezilla lets me pause the files I selected
and doesn't mess with the UI.

I can't maintain the selection I had, because as soon
as one uploads, the list recenters the view - despite
me being in the middle of selecting things. I lose the
highlighted files I had and have to start over.
I can't select a lot of files at once. I can't sort the
list, despite clickable heading buttons [whcih would
suggest i could].
I get frustrated by having to select 5 files, pause
them, unfocus them, select 5 more.
I cannot pause a collection of files if any of them are
already paused. So, if I highlight ONE file that's
already paused, I can't change the other ones.
The same applies if a file has messed up during
transfer [ I can't pause failed files ].

These bugs make it unpleasant to use filezilla because
I'm wary of making a mistake, dropping in the wrong
directory to upload.
If this area was *bigger* by default, and did not move
when I had my mouse in there AND let me set states that
are already set [ie, ignore those items], I would be a
much happier user.
