Take a look at this interaction bug.
- Connect to FTP server
- Get a directory listing of some kind
- Add a file, example.txt, to that directory external to filezilla.
- Enter /path/to/file/example.txt in the server address bar.
File is downloaded.
A warning that /path/to/file/example.txt/ is not a
So; the design is:
- User uses the mouse to navigate this interface, and download/upload files
If the user choose to use the keyboard to get to a directory quicker; they can do that
But if they want one specific file, they must use the mouse to get it AFTER typing in the directory they want
If they type in the wrong thing; display an error from the server as far away as possible from the control they are editing (error messages are leftmost, the server control is rightmost)
That's by design.
