(ftp too) and somehow it's now always appearing (i loved directory listings which were before) the biggest flaw is that i can't copy the link from this bitchin' treeview for users like me, you should make this configurable - some people would use the tree-view, some - directory listing. there should be an option for this! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Um. We have this. Look under Preferences | Debug | Networking.
That's good that the optin exists. But: If only I had debug under preferences. I compiled Mozilla myself, and IIRC with --disable-debug. Anyway, such option shouldn't be in debug section. It's a mainstream UI configuration option and should be placed somewhere in preferences/navigator, I suppose.
New profiles always default to HTML-dir listings. Without having Mozilla open, what's the value of this in prefs.js: user_pref("network.dir.format", 3); If it's '3', try 2 or 1, instead. As for where this UI belongs, the decision was made a while back...
The debug panel is removed in milestone builds. The default value of the pref is indeed the "old-style" listing (you must have changed it for that profile in the past). And the reason the pref is "debug" is because the new-style listing is not yet good enough for consumption by users.
i don't remember changing this pref before, but thanks anyway
