UI sucks (v3.9.0.1 on Mac)

#1 Post by complaint » 2014-07-30 00:22

Just installed the latest version of FZ, v3.9.0.1 and I am very distraught over the unpleasant UI driving me nuts.

Never before I had any complaint about FZ.

Here is a list of things that I suggest should be addressed:
  • number fomatting (file size) doesn't work. The comma digit separator (,) doesn't work
  • the font in the file list is too fat, too large and no way to change it by user
  • the top of the window (where the icons are) has changed and is confusing
These problems were not in the previous version. The previous version was fine.

Thank you for your hard work.

At least the toolbar has to look like this. It cannot look different with Cocoa, Apple does not allow it.

Ok, the toolbar was fine before but now changed? -- Well, it's the last of my worries.

It seems there are other things that are seriously wrong with the latest release. I NEVER had anything to complain about in this (otherwise) fine product.

My advice:

Code: Select all

DO NOT UPGRADE TO VERSION 3.9.0.1

Please DONATE to the author.

It's amazing. In the whole wide world, the only usable open source FTP client is this Filezilla. Nothing gets even close!
Is there a way to download an earlier version? Where? Link please.

The problem is Apple. They deprecated Carbon in favor of the badly designed Cocoa.
