Expected Results: ftp the file... The problem dissapeared when the publishing addres was changed from: ftp://ftp.somesite.com/data/web/docs to ftp://ftp.somesite.com//data/web/docs It apears that in this case mozilla retains the first slash in the path, and correctly uploads the file. The doubling of the slash after the hostname is counterintuitive, and probably not in accordance with URL syntax.

actually it has to do with the login when you login to an ftp server, you may be put into a subdirectory (or not) It sounds like in your case, you are put somewhere not at the root. If your login area happens to have a directory named "data" which has in it a directory named "web" (etc.) then the files would correctly publish in that location. When you want to get to the root of an ftp server, you need to add the extra slash. I don't know of any other workaround. The extra slash tells the ftp server to go to the root rather than relative. The browser also works this way, if you enter an ftp url. I hope I've explained the above clearly. Feel free to comment here to get clarification. -->wontfix since it makes sense that the login go to the local location that you login to and not to the root area
